OntoWiki – A Tool for Social, Semantic Collaboration

OntoWiki facilitates the visual presentation of a knowledge base as an information map, with different views on instance data. It enables intuitive authoring of semantic content, with an inline editing mode for editing RDF content, similar to WYSIWYG for text documents. It fosters social collaboration aspects by keeping track of changes, allowing to comment and discuss every single part of a knowledge base, enabling to rate and measure the popularity of content and honoring the activity of users.

Ontowiki enhances the browsing and retrieval by offering semantic enhanced search strategies. All these techniques are applied with the ultimate goal of decreasing the entrance barrier for projects and domain experts to collaborate using semantic technologies. The Digital Time.

Post-scriptum sur les sociétés de contrôle

Historique Foucault a situé les sociétés disciplinaires aux XVIIIème et XIXème siècles ; elles atteignent leur apogée au début du XXème. Elles procèdent à l’organisation des grands milieux d’enfermement. L’individu ne cesse de passer d’un milieu clos à un autre, chacun ayant ses lois : d’abord la famille, puis l’école (« tu n’es plus dans ta famille »), puis la caserne (« tu n’es plus à l’école »), puis l’usine, de temps en temps l’hôpital, éventuellement la prison qui est le milieu d’enfermement par excellence.

The Net has become our symbol for the future. Twitter as a Curation Tool  I have written and spoken extensively about the use of Twitter in education: In addition to the above mentioned uses of Twitter, I am increasingly becoming aware of the importance of Twitter as a CURATION tool for me.

The term “curation” in itself has become quite popular recently. I am not sure yet, if it is another term destined to become a victim of talking at cross purposes among the educational community. Mike Fisher has blogged about curation and what it means versus the concept of collection. Collecting is what kids do when asked to find resources for a particular topic.
