All knowledge, annotated

Presenter: Dan Whaley (, USA)

This August the W3C chartered the Web Annotation Working Group, based around an RDF data model called Open Annotation, which is rapidly being integrated into new open source tools and software libraries and adopted by a diverse cross-section of scholars, scientists, educators and others. The potential is to create a new layer over the web as we know it, enabling a rich set of interactive capabilities that until now have not been possible. This talk will provide an overview of the history behind annotation as an essential idea of the web, demonstrate some of the ways its being used and suggest plans for further development.
