ProfTakeda, presenting Semantic Blog, RNA
HenryStory, presenting Atom-OWL-FOAF data-structure
Coming from completely different backgrounds, and not knowing each other before this conference, we discovered that we had a very similar interests and goals.
* Starting with an integration of blog editor, news reader/agregator, ie a thick client (Prof takeda has a working windows client (RNN?), BlogEd is setting out to go in that direction)
* This allows one to keep a personal view of your blog/wiki space: to keep a local copy of all your posts, of all the entries you refer to, of all that you have read, ... ie: your understanding of the world at a time, your knowledge horizon (ProfTakeda) * Atom-OWL-FOAF model Identifies an entry with a unique entry ID, and possibly a unique entry version id (still under debate in Atom group). This means one can have both a temporal view of a blog, and an atemporal view (how an entry changed over time: They are logical rules to take one from one to the other) One can therefore very nicely map blog entries, and all blog relations into an RDF triple store. Please contribute on the google group
* Saving everything in a local RDF database, including FOAF files which allows one to discover new feeds, leads to a growing amount of data placed on the local thick client. * All of the above would suggest long term to the possibility of a peer to peer distributed blog space: since everyone will have such an overlapping view of their data space there will be huge duplication of entries and thus it should lend itself well to searchable peer network such as jxta. * In the mean time Prof. Takeda's RNA has developed something that is a long way towards that goal.
