Events

Today

  1. AnnotatIST - Annotate ISTanbul gathering
    • Calendar: cmpe.events@gmail.com
    • Digitized, distributed knowledge was supposed to herald a new golden age of collaborative thinking and doing. With physical objects we have used annotations as a way to markup or embellish an existing document during collaborative sessions. And indeed with digital objects on the
      Web, we now have a range of tools and techniques for annotating them.

      Yet the most creative and engaging forms of collaboration currently come to us via centralized corporate services such as that of FaceBook or Google Docs, not via independent, interoperable and open frameworks that support collaboration specific decentralized repositories.

      We propose to discuss together the potential of semantic annotation tools with the creativity of real-world scenarios of making and sharing annotations, interlinking and harvesting these, and modifying, combining, and transforming pieces of knowledge to support innovative forms of collaborative thinking, making, and doing. Digitized forms such as web-based text, image, audio, video objects and subject
      ontologies offer unprecedented opportunities for people to work together and produce collaborative knowledge across widely different geographical locations and technical accordances. We also reflect on the freedom of expression, privacy and personalization needs of these emerging modes of internet usage.

      The intention of this gathering is to bring together people who have been working on annotation frameworks and those who see the potential in annotating web documents. We aim to model a space and a form of technological practice, in an experimental collaborative workshop. After 25 years of the Web and over a trillion web pages, it is time to embrace the annotation game and transform our collaborative tools.

      Schedule

      28 - pre event - a long afternoon of introductions and Friday schedule

      People start arriving at the venue post lunch.
      By 4pm we can start the event introductions.
      Labor-tech (LA) connect at 7pm

      29 - why annotate today - talks and discussions (10am until 5pm+)

      10am arrive. Start at 10:30am.

      Watch this space for a Friday evening update

      Generally:
      The idea of social semantic web and how annotations can address the needs of the emerging internet users such as low-literate,
      storytelling and content curation.

      Technically:
      Interoperable, federated and contextual annotations, and annotation containers

      Tele participation:
      We tried out http://meet.jit.si which uses WebRTC and the performance
      was not half bad. Please try it to make sure you have a compatible
      browser. Preference given to out of town/country participants in case
      of congestion.
