I have a confession of sorts to make. I do not care for car racing. I know you are wondering why that would matter, but you see, I live in the midwest, was raised just miles from the home of the Indianapolis 500, and am probably the only member of my family who doesn’t love it; in fact, one of the few who do not participate in it in some form or fashion, locally and nationally. I am the oddball, the black sheep, and the outsider. And I am okay with that. However, in my constant search for unique taxonomies, I have conceded to set that aside and share this with you. The Winding Road brought this interesting news in their article, “The Taxonomy of Road Racing.”

Even in topics of little to no interest, there are applications for the science of taxonomy. The important thing to remember is a strong standards-based taxonomy is one with true integrity. Access Innovations is one of a very small number of companies able to help its clients generate ANSI/ISO/W3C-compliant taxonomies.
