When someone says Thanksgiving food, most people think turkey. But not everyone. For some, the end of the meal holds the greatest interest and treasures. Thus why this Dessert Taxonomy caught my eye on the blog, Bobulate.

Whether it is the cookie classification or the pie category, the ooey gooey sweet treats that keeps the young ones peeking over the edge of the table and the old ones stealing nibbles is always a hit at any holiday.

I am always fascinated by unusual and interesting taxonomies, but it is important to remember that, as entertaining and fun as this is, 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.
