Collaborative knowledge sharing & social networking

The objective here is to inter-connect people with each other and their collective knowledge in meaningful ways. There is also the opportunity to visualise these relationships.

The semantic web was envisaged by Tim Berners-Lee in 1999 “I have a dream for the Web [in which computers] become capable of analyzing all the data on the Web – the content, links, and transactions between people and computers. A ‘Semantic Web’, which should make this possible, has yet to emerge, but when it does, the day-to-day mechanisms of trade, bureaucracy and our daily lives will be handled by machines talking to machines. The ‘intelligent agents’ people have touted for ages will finally materialize.
