Enhancing MediaWiki Talk pages with Semantics for Better Coordination – a proposal (SemWiki 2010 short paper)

May 31st, 2010

Today Alex is presenting our short paper (PDF) at SemWiki. We describe an extension to SIOC for MediaWiki Talk pages: the SIOC WikiTalk ontology, http://rdfs.org/sioc/wikitalk.

The general line of research is to provide tools for arguing, convincing others, and understanding the status of a debate, in social media, with Semantic Web technologies. This is work in progress and suggestions and other feedback are most welcome.

Besides the short paper (PDF), these slides are also downloadable (slides PDF).

W3C Library Linked Data Incubator Group starting

May 25th, 2010

The W3C has announced an incubator activity around Library Linked Data. I’ll be one of DERI’s participants in the group.

Its mission? To help increase global interoperability of library data on the Web, and to bring together people from archives, museums, publishing, etc. to talk about metadata. See the charter for more details.

Interested in joining? If you’re at a W3C member organization, ask your Advisory Committee Representative to appoint you. Or, get appointed as an invited expert by contacting one of the chairs (Tom Baker, Emmanuelle Bermes, Antoine Isaac); their contact info is available from the participants’ list.

Or, you can follow along on the incubator group’s public mailing list. (For organizing, the Sem lib mailing list was used.)

The first teleconference will be Thursday, 3 June at 1500 UTC.
