by 1 other
Tags have taken the internet by storm. Where once the question was “what are they,” now all people want to know is whether a given site offers them. But what are the actual benefits of tags? What motivates millions of Flickr, and blog users to add tags to their photos and posts?

Ontology of Folksonomy

by 6 others (via)
Ontologies are enabling technology for the Semantic Web. They are a means for people to state what they mean by formal terms used in data that they might generate or consume. Folksonomies are an emergent phenomenon of the social web. They are created as people associate terms with content that they generate or consume. Recently the two ideas have been put into opposition, as if they were right and left poles of a political spectrum. This piece is an attempt to shed some cool light on the subject, and to preview some new work that applies the two ideas together to enable an Internet ecology for folksonomies.

SKOS, l'avenir de la folksonomie ?

by 2 others
J'ai déjà fait allusion à plusieurs reprises au vocabulaire RDF, SKOS (Simple knowledge organisation system) sur ce blog. Développé sous l'égide du W3C, il a pour but la modélisation et la mise à disposition selon le principe de RDF des thésaurus, taxonomies, glossaires et autres vocabulaires contrôlés. La mise en ligne des thésaurus existants au format RDF est fondamental dans le déploiement du Web sémantique, car cela permet d'associer à chaque concept une URI et ainsi de pouvoir y faire référence dans d'autres fichiers RDF.

by 3 others (via)
Tags are not all the same, some are more similar than others. So, for example, the tag “September11″ and “GeorgeBush” have more links in common than “GeorgeBush” and “intelligence”.
