I am sooo excited about this

Originally uploaded by Automatt.

automatt is happy about rawsugar. This flickr pic and the according text show why: rawsugar allows him to structure tags. As I predicted: folksonomies go towards semantic web.

Finally started to get into RawSugar. I imported all of my bookmarks from del.icio.us in about a minute, and now I can give my folksonomy some structure, and separate the tags I use for keeping track of stuff into different heirarchical categories or collections. And you can search your collections and your friends’ collections all at once!

gnowsis at the cebit

We are going to present the current gnowsis alpha 0.8.x and the upcoming beta 0.9 at the cebit 2006. Hannover, 9. to 15th march.

I will be there from 9. to 12th March 2006. If you want to meet me, come during this time.

At the cebit: Halle 009, Stand B45

Features to expect there:

  • from the epos project:
  • context elicitation – what does a user do
  • workflow support – what do I have to do now?
  • miniqure, linker, lotsa features
  • from the gnowsis beta:
  • a complete new architecture, installer, components, database, … all is better in the beta
  • a clear and easy way to write your own ontology to get your things together. Express your thoughts!
  • desktop search as we always wanted
  • tagging of e-mails, web-sites, files, ontology elements. all mixed together and really nice

as we are still working on it, I am eager to see what we have then ­čÖé
