I am Kwan and is really interested in RDF and other semantic web related
topics, and am doing a research in knowledge managment system. I have
drafted out the KlogMS system (knowledge weblog management system), and
is going to implement it.
You could just think the KlogMS is an editable version of FOAF, and the
major purpose is for knowledge sharing and linking for this time. One
special thing for the KlogMS is the idea of "knowledge chunking". In the
KlogMS, everything are just chunks, including a piece of knowledge, a
category, a person, etc. In the presentation, a chunk will display the
content of itself, as well as some content for the sub-chunks in the
lower level. Between a chunk and a sub-chunk, there maybe given an
"include", "has reply", "has topic" relationship. Where these
relationships are specified by an URI, which means the KlogMS can be
built up across different servers. It makes KlogMS look just like FOAF
and that is the reason why I mail to this list.
I am thinking about the volcabulary set now... just slowed down because
I dont have much experience in designing a document with OWL and RDFS.
Moreover, I dont know if there is existing element set that is suitable
for the KlogMS. If that exists, I have to know how can I use that and to
decide use which for each property... just like how does the FOAF use
namespaces BIO and GEO.
I have just setup some tools for communication and documentation making.
You can find the link for wiki, forum ... in our page:
You could probably find out that there are other projects started out to
support the KlogMS. They include an "Object Manipulator" and the "Object
Querying" engine. Without the Object Manipulator, KlogMS documents will
remain quiet on the servers just as the FOAF do. So this is another
major part of the KlogMS. You could think this a a RDF editor, but is
designed to work in an user-friendly way, which should just like the
editor for an ordinary wiki/blog (wysiwyg is also recommanded for places
that hold xhtml data, just my opinion in the point of user-friendliness).
Just would like to seek for comments for the KlogMS project, and would
like to know if anybody is interested in contributing... Expert ideas
are valuable for us!
