As mentioned in a previous blog post, int.ere.st has just launched. The main objective of int.ere.st is to demonstrate how Semantic Web and Web 2.0 technologies can be combined to provide better metadata creation and sharing support across various online communities.
With int.ere.st, you can save, tag and bookmark your own as well as other people’s tag clouds, as represented using the SCOT ontology. The tag meta search also allows you to look for similar patterns of tagging from other people based on their interests (as expressed using tags).
Some functionalities of int.ere.st include:
- Various options for tag searching, such as and (&), or (space), co-occurrence (+), broader (>), and narrower (< )
- User searching
- Resource searching
- Integrating tagged data across communities
- Meta tagging
- Ontology bookmarking
- Sharing metadata produced using the FOAF, SIOC, and SCOT ontologies
You can try it at out at http://int.ere.st/. Here are some video demos of int.ere.st in action, and some more videos are forthcoming:
