Brighton SWTT Workshop – The Day After

Ross Parry and Frances Lloyd-Baynes of the V&A talking passionately at the SWTT meeting, Brighton.

24 Hour Museum’s HQ in Brighton was the scene of a packed, bustling, productive meeting of the Semantic Web Thinktank project. A full report of the proceedings will appear here as soon as possible, but here’s a picture that captures the mood of the meeting. Ross Parry is in full flow talking to Frances Lloyd-Baynes of the V&A in front of one of his famous diagrams.

Next meeting is in Newcastle on December 19 – watch this space for more news and an agenda for that meeting, plus the Brighton meeting report.

Meeting reports are generated from an audio transcript of the meeting – that means someone trawling through hours of talks and trying to get down the essence of the ideas presented. If you were at the meeting and think we’ve missed something, please add it to the blog and we’ll make sure it gets in the report. We really need this collection of documentation of the meetings to build into something meaningful – so it’s key you add to the group knowledge by posting.

    I enjoyed the day tremendously! I’ve posted a short summary on our blog at http://nlablog.wordpress.com/.
    The critical discussion in relation to our research was the lively debate around attempting to define the use and value of social software, folksonomies and the semantic web. From my notes, a very early definition looked like this…

    Social softwares are about communication and creativity, and in the museum, are driven used by community networking

    Folksononmies are about social meaning, and in the musuem, are driven by informal knowledge exchange

    Semantic web is about discovery and intercontextuality and in the museum, is driven by policy/ sector needs

    I’d be interested to know whether others have described this in other ways!
    Thanks again and look forward to the report!
