Somewhere, someone thought up an ontology, and remained anonymous. Perhaps you could say it was because of this anonymity that we hardly mention people at all, here in the text. One can only guess why he or she decided to remain unknown, but there you have it: we don’t know who or why they did what they did. It was one of those viral phenomena, which sometimes tends to be something of an emergence in the phenomenon sense; one might even believe that it formed from the work of more than one hand and mind — maybe there were many who thought of pieces of it, improved what what was there, what began as almost trivial, and then passed it on. But as it came to pass, this interpretation, this organization principle, traveled the world over, whatever parts of the world knew about ontologies at all, and were hip to the newest trends. And this is what this story is about.
