  • Faviki makes semantic tagging (almost) as easy as classic
  • July 2, 2009
  • custom names for tags
  • ...30 more annotations...
  • better control over tagging
  • OpenID
  • Save API
  • defining new tags
  • several new features
  • mainly to facilitate the use of common tags
  • overcome Wikipedia’s limitations as a controlled vocabulary for semantic tags
  • common, “semantic” tags are unique, well-defined concepts
  • Is it possible to make semantic tags as flexible as classic ones? Can humans accept and love the format intended for machines?
  • Enhanced tagging interface
  • added in free form, resembling classic tagging
  • possible to use custom names for tags
  • If Faviki doesn’t understand a tag provided by a user, it will ask her to disambiguate it. It will then remember her choice
  • Faviki “learns” about user’s name of the tag

      Superb.
  • custom names for tags can also be modified explicitly on the Tag page.
  • Defining new tags
  • added the same way as Wikipedia tags. The difference is that, this time, Google search is not restricted to Wikipedia’s domain
  • only a few of the top results are allowed to be selected
  • users collaboratively create new tags
  • Users collaboratively decide the best URLs for a concept

      Title, URL, a little text and a thumbnail, with sources. Compare the two. Answer yes or no. Perfect!
  • Save/Edit API
  • a simple API that provides a way to save and edit bookmarks from other applications.

  • Other features/improvements

Faviki - Social bookmarking tool using smart semantic Wikipedia (DBpedia) tags - 0 views

    Left to right: * triangular switch to close (hide detail) or open   — green switch for other user's bookmarks   — amber switch for your own bookmarks * favicon of the bookmarked item * username of the most recent networker * title of the bookmarked item   — font size a little greater than the norm * date or time of networking   — font size a little less than the norm + save + spam?   — these options appear when you curse over the date/time. When the bookmark is open, detail comprises: * highlight from the page * personal note * tags   — Common Tag   — as you curse over each one, its definition * popularity   — the number of people who have networked the bookmarked item + overview   — this option appears subtly when you curse over the number. Example Faviki overviews http://www.faviki.com/webpage/wave.google.com_28277 and http://www.faviki.com/webpage/esw.w3.org_12350 suggest that early adopters of Faviki may not make greatest use of highlights and notes, but that's a separate topic …
