Folksonomy to Ontology

So after presenting all my views on why it should be possible to transform tag clouds to structured data entities (ontologies of sorts), I have gone about devising a method to do so.

When it is ready, I will release a Protege project showing how it is done. In the meantime look at my Protege page on this blog, which is where the project will eventually go.

Right on Writely

A while back I wrote a short blog about how much I liked Writely the web based word processor. Apparently Google liked it too, and they bought the company.

Before then, I was an “active user” sending bug reports concerning Firefox on Linux which is my platform. I got a personal email from the developers thanking me for the bug reports, because this is not so common a platform (unfortunately!!!!)

Anyway, after the buyout I sent them a message saying how glad I was for their success, and telling them how much I appreciated the service they provided before. I hoped the service would continue after the buyout. Amazingly, a few hours later I received another email from the developers, in response to my comment, thanking me for the support!!!

Amazing. Here is a bunch of guys who did not go straight to the bar to celebrate their success …. which they well deserve.
