How could I not share this little gem? Labeled the “action hero manifesto”, this wheel classifies the various attributes that surround a superhero. For instance, an action hero is not a superhero. This interesting information came from Esquire magazine in their article, “The Taxonomy of Action Heroes.

Furthermore, an action hero has to be able to die. And an action hero drives a car. Always. Even if he lives in Manhattan.

There is value in classification. True taxonomies can help manage big data by providing a solid standards-based taxonomy to index against. The results are comprehensive and consistent search results. Access Innovations is one of a very small number of companies able to help its clients generate ANSI/ISO/W3C-compliant taxonomies because of consistency.
