MyWikiBiz features semantic tags which allow users to do some pretty amazing things. Over on Wikipedia, you might see handfuls of Categories to classify articles about aviation disasters. Goofy categories like:

  • Accidents and incidents on commercial airliners in the United States
  • Accidents and incidents on commercial airliners in Florida
  • Accidents and incidents on commercial airliners in Kentucky
  • Airliner crashes caused by instrument failure
  • Airliner crashes caused by pilot error
  • Aviation accidents and incidents in 1972
  • Aviation accidents and incidents in 1989

Frankly, we at MyWikiBiz think this sort of "category creep" is maddening. Wouldn't the user interested in airliner accidents be much better served by something like this?

Note that you can sort the columns by clicking the "bowtie" symbol in any column header. Isn't this a much better way to categorize airliner accidents? Also, registered users of MyWikiBiz can create their own custom query tables -- so if you're only interested in DC-9 crashes consisting of flights less than 200 miles, you could assemble that. Easily.
