Why was fuzzzy developed

Fuzzzy was part of Roy Lachica's masters' thesis. The purpose of the project was to:
  1. Test a new type of metadata categorization, namely the "folktology" (folk + ontology) a semantic tagging system which resembles folksonomies but are built on Topic Maps.
  2. To investigate polyscopic, democratic, collaborative and holistic aspects of knowledge creation.
  3. For personal benefits. To learn Topic Maps and to become more nerd.
