- Should we aim to maintain a library?
- Knowledge base and list of knowledgeable individuals, and understand current work, projects and interests
- Membership, recruitment etc.
- Things we can do now the infrastructure is sorted out
- Brainstorm and share information about people and projects relevant to this SIG
- Linked Data
- Big Data

Meeting Chat Log (Raw)
[15:02] Mike Bennett: Apologies:
[15:02] Mike Bennett: Naicong Li
[15:02] Mike Bennett: Andrea Westerinen
[15:06] anonymous morphed into Bart Gajderowicz
[15:22] Mike Bennett: Blog:
[15:22] Mike Bennett: People can apply to be an Author - by email to Mike or Andrea, and we will add you
[15:22] Mike Bennett: The blog does not allow anonymous comments
[15:22] Mike Bennett: THe blog does allow anyonw who is logged in to their Google account to post.
[15:23] Mike Bennett: Publicizing the Blog
[15:24] Mike Bennett: Everyone can please hit the Google+ Facebook, Twitter button to let their followes know of it
[15:24] Mike Bennett: We can also post to various lists...
[15:25] Mike Bennett: Leo has a list of lists we can use.
[15:26] Mike Bennett: ACTION Leo will send this list to the swao list, then Mike or others can post links to the SWAP blog. We can carve that work up.
[15:27] Mike Bennett: URI Linking
[15:27] Mike Bennett: Can we make this a sub-domain off the IAOA domain e.g. swao.iaoa.org
[15:28] Leo Obrst: I found the list of distribution lists I compiled for Ontology Summit 2014: I'll post to the chat.
[15:28] Leo Obrst: 'firstname.lastname@example.org'
Ontology Summit 2014 email@example.com
'[ontolog-forum] ' firstname.lastname@example.org
[15:29] Mike Bennett: Blogspot allows you do that. Requires the registrar of the iaoa domain to co-ordinate.
[15:29] Mike Bennett: We would have to run this by the the Executive Council of IAOA.
[15:29] Mike Bennett: Frank Loebe and Oliver Kutz would end up doing the work on this.
[15:30] Mike Bennett: The choices we would have include:
[15:30] Mike Bennett: swao.iaoa.org
[15:30] Mike Bennett: swao-blog.iaoa.org
[15:30] Mike Bennett: www.iaoa.org/swao-blog
[15:31] Mike Bennett: www.iaoa.org/swao/this and that
[15:31] Mike Bennett: (we have 34 things already: Blog, website and wiki
[15:31] Mike Bennett: ^ 3 things
[15:33] Mike Bennett: The website is at:
[15:33] Mike Bennett: So we could have something like:
[15:33] Mike Bennett: www.iaoa.org/sig/swao/blog
[15:34] Mike Bennett: or www.iaoa.org/sig/swao-blog
[15:34] Mike Bennett: Other SIG pages follow directly from www.iaoa.org without the intervening /sig/ fragment
[15:35] Mike Bennett: So it would make sense to have a conversation with Frank and Oliver to get our SIG pages consistent with the other SIG pages.
[15:36] Bart Gajderowicz: ^ menu links
[15:37] Mike Bennett: Once we know what path we want, can we get blogspot to link to a sub-directory structure.
[15:37] Mike Bennett: ACTION: Bart will look into whether links to a sub directory can be done, since this is different to pointing just the IP address to a different place.
[15:37] Mike Bennett: It might not be trivial since you're linking sub directory versus IP.
[15:39] Mike Bennett: Use of Question and Answer platforms (Bart)
[15:39] Mike Bennett: We are inverting the use of the blog to be more like a Q and A platform.
[15:39] Mike Bennett: there are platofrms which do this: Quora, StackExchange
[15:40] Mike Bennett: StackExchange has different sites with different topics.
[15:40] Mike Bennett: We coulc propose to create a new site for Semantic Web Applied Ontologies to be one of those sites.
[15:40] Mike Bennett: this also has features for people to rank answers, etc.
[15:40] Mike Bennett: Also there are platforms you can install locally to do that.
[15:40] Mike Bennett: Options are therefore 2:
[15:40] Mike Bennett: 1. Propose a new site on StackExchange
[15:41] Mike Bennett: 2. Install the platform locally
[15:42] Mike Bennett: Question: is (1) above a thing worth doing regardless of what we do with the blog?
[15:43] Mike Bennett: StackOverflow is one of the StackExchange sites. StackExchange is the platform itself.
[15:44] Mike Bennett: Profile and reputation: these are kept separate but you can have an overall profile across the sites.
[15:45] Mike Bennett: Currently any references to ontology seem to be on StackOverflow.
[15:45] Mike Bennett: There is also a philosophy StackExchange
[15:46] Mike Bennett: There is also a Philosophy one
[15:47] Mike Bennett: Also Data Science
[15:47] Mike Bennett: But nothing dedicated to ontologies and semantics.
[15:48] Mike Bennett: We could create a StackExchange site whose name and scope are broad enough to embrace all the areas which this SIG intends to bring together and bridge the gaps between
[15:48] Mike Bennett: Namely Semantic Web, applied ontology, ...
[15:48] Mike Bennett: cognitive computing?
[15:49] Mike Bennett: i.e. make this a one stop shop for all questions semantic and ontology based.
[15:50] Mike Bennett: We could then also get admins on the math and philosophy sites to move questions over to us if these are more relevant to our area.
[15:51] Mike Bennett: We are not exactly a quorum but let's propose to do this, independently of whatever we do with the blog.
[15:52] Mike Bennett: ACTION: Bart will look into what is involved with creating a new StackExchange site.
[15:52] Mike Bennett: .
[15:52] Mike Bennett: On ethe earlier action: Blogspot does NOT allow for linking a blog to a path uner and existing URL.
