Keotag, multiple engine and service tag search and generator

It has been demonstrated that tag words are important to be able to develop correct ontologies. This fact is compounded by the large number of different tags and the way that they are used. For some order to appear in all this chaos, inheritance and classes of tags need to be established and standardized for it to work.

Memes, a set of examples, theories and ideas

In this article, we discuss and examine the idea of a meme with theories, examples and reasoning. We concentrate on the memes generated in the blogosphere and in IT, leaving aside cultural and linguistic memes. We also examine the impact that memes have on web site traffic and on the blogosphere.

As described before, a meme refers to a replicator of cultural information that one mind transmits (verbally or by demonstration) to another mind.

In the context of the blogosphere and IT, a meme is an idea, video, story that is transmitted from one user to the next, via a blog based medium, be it a vblog, a blog or a podcast. It empowers the blogosphere to be an almost instant agent of information dissemination, if the memotype of the meme is relevant to enough people.

del.icio.us, social bookmarking in the context of a viral wave of traffic

(This article was updated at 20:36 EST)

One of the most popular web 2.0 tools is social bookmarking. Even if del.icio.us started out as a way to bookmark and tag your favorites sites and blogs, it has evolved into meme in its own right by indicating trends. These trends manifest themselves by the amount of times a certain link has been saved, or by the del.icio.us/popular and del.icio.us/recent pages from the main site. Also, popurls and reaggregator sites diggdot.us.

Editing and Addendum by Marc Fawzi

A lot of buzz about Web 3.0 and Wikipedia 3.0 has been generagted lately by Marc Fawzi through this blog, so I’ve decided that for my first post here I’d like to dive into this idea and take a look at how to build a Semantic Content Management System (CMS). I know this blog has had a more of a visionary, psychological and sociological theme (i.e., the vision for the future and the Web’s effect on society, human relationships and the individual himself), but I’d like to show the feasibility of this vision by providing some technical details.

Please note: the term “Web 3.0″ is the dictionary word “Web” followed by the number “3″, a decimal point and the number “0.” As such, the term itself cannot and should not have any commercial significance in any context.

How it All Started …

The first use of the term Web 3.0 in conjunction with the Semantic Web that reached hundreds of thousands of people (according to Alexa.com) was made in the Wikipedia 3.0: The End of Google? article, which was published here on Evolving Trends at 5:20am EST, June 26, ‘06.

Futurism and Semantic Web

The reason why transhumanism, posthumans, extropianism and technological singularities were defined is because they will have relationships with some aspects of semantic web.

As posthumans are derived from humans, semantic web will be derived from web 2.0. Ontologies will be created and artificial intelligence will play a major role in all of these facets.

What kind of web or allweb will posthumans interact with? How will AIs be involved? Will there be Türing type AIs at that time?
