Twine is a semantic web application. It’s still in private beta (invite only) and has been for a while.
Twine aggregates emails, bookmarks, documents, contacts, photos, videos, product info, data records, and more. Twine actually understands the meaning of any information you add in, it helps you organize all your stuff automatically. Finally, you can search and browse everything and everyone you know, about anything, in one convenient place.
Radar Networks Announces Twine.com, A Revolutionary Semantic Web Application, at Web 2.0 Summit
Radar Networks, a pioneer of Semantic Web technology, today announced the invite-beta of Twine, a new service that gives users a smarter way to share, organize, and find information with people they trust. Twine was introduced and previewed publicly for the first time today, at the 2007 Web 2.0 Summit, a Web industry conference in San Francisco. Twine is one of the first mainstream applications of the Semantic Web, or what is sometimes referred to as Web 3.0.
Twine Ties it all Together
Twine is a new service that intelligently helps you share, organize and find information with people you trust.
In Twine you can safely share information and knowledge, and collaborate around common interests, activities and goals. Twine helps you better leverage and contribute to the collective intelligence of your network. Use Twine to share more productively with friends, colleagues, groups and teams.
Twine provides one place to tie everything together: emails, bookmarks, documents, contacts, photos, videos, product info, data records, and more. And, because Twine actually understands the meaning of any information you add in, it helps you organize all your stuff automatically. Finally, you can search and browse everything and everyone you know, about anything, in one convenient place.
You are like a snowflake – you are totally one-of-a-kind. Twine recognizes what makes you special: your unique interests, personality, knowledge and relationships, to help you find and discover things, and be found by others, more relevantly.
Who is Twine For?
Friends. Colleagues. Groups. Teams. Anyone who needs help dealing with the growing array of information and relationships on the Web today. Whether you just need to organize and share with friends, or you need to collaborate better with teams, Twine provides the smartest way to tie it all together.
How Does Twine work?
We thought you’d never ask! Well, in a nutshell Twine uses the Semantic Web, natural language processing, and machine learning to make your information and relationships smarter. But if that’s all Greek to you, just think of Twine as your very own intelligent personal Web assistant, working for you behind the scenes so you can be more productive.
