About Me

My photo
Web person at the Imperial War Museum, just completed PhD about digital sustainability in museums (the original motivation for this blog was as my research diary). Posting occasionally, and usually museum tech stuff but prone to stray. I welcome comments if you want to take anything further. These are my opinions and should not be attributed to my employer or anyone else (unless they thought of them too). Twitter: @jottevanger

About time we had a link to this: http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/
"A Dublin Core Application Profile for Scholarly Works" in Ariadne: http://www.ariadne.ac.uk/issue50/allinson-et-al/. Application profiles may prove relevant to research, although not so much in the context of scholarly publications
Amazon's new collaborative tagging thing: http://amapedia.amazon.com/
Lorcan Dempsey talking about the embedded nature of networked data, and its combination with local data, in iTunes: http://orweblog.oclc.org/archives/001253.html
Research on tagging, with references to SW-related issues: http://pewresearch.org/pubs/402/tagging-play
Oh, and Jeremy gives TechCrunch the smack-down treatment "the site is devoted to pointing out all that is flashy and pointless on the web"
