…at Gnowsis : Semantic Desktop Hack Workshop 2006,DFKI Kaiserslautern

Posted by danzinde on April 21, 2006

…As planned, today i was among SemDesk Hackers for Gnowsis [A desktop application based on RDF to view the hype of Semantic Web Technologies on Personal Computers : A tool to better organise your personal resources on desktop computers].

nice time to meet smart peoples who are quite eager to smoke Semantic Desktop and encourage others to get addicted in Gnowsis 🙂

starting with Leo's talk on Introducing the Gnowsis, Dominik Heim followed and gave a cool demo of Semantic Wiki enhancements in Gnowsis 0.9 (beta)[download],food at Mensa was well served on chip card.

…Semantic Desktop idea is based on visualizing your organisation of work, categorising your thoughts in personalised ontology and making you smart in work efficiency

…here is my philosophy to support semantic Desktop idea,

  • basically we as human,are both social and individual in different contexts,wouldn't it be nice to know about ourself [metacognition] and evolve from experiences of our behaviour in different contexts,the more i know about myself the better i organise myself,what if this is realised in Gnowsis: whose idea is to provide a better platform for personalised Ontology right on your desktop.
  • my way of learning and memorizing a new concept is through association and collaboration,the more i associate myself the better i organise myself,does it work the same for you ? if yes,then get addicted to personal organisation,visualize your mental model,know your social and personal contexts,make your Personalised IM Ontology and be smart :Gnowsis keeps this vision.
  • my ideas are a bit exaggerated but not impractical "Usability increases metacognition" and "metacognition makes you more intelligent"

…this world needs smart people atleast for Godly reasons 🙂

..so wait we are not finished yet ,two more days to work together,sharing ideas and hack together to make things work together

myself in Kaiserslautern ( K-town )

Posted by danzinde on April 16, 2006

… now i am in Kaiserslautern ,south-west of Germany, also known as American city of Europe (K-town),because it has a largest American Military base in Europe called "Ramstein"

…expecting a new city life,different experiences and much more work.I see Kaiserslautern as the city of technology sorrounded by beautiful nature:little mountains and forests.Kaiserslautern is One of the 12 venues for World cup Soccer 2006 and expected to be known internationally.

having “Knowledge” but lacking “Wisdom”

Posted by danzinde on April 9, 2006

…this is a serious Contradiction which could be perceived in todays information highways and network of social collaborations which provides an uncontrolled acces to expression of personal experiences.

The present world opinoin and thoughts are being driven by "Knowledge", in principle, there is a common sense in humanity which is understandable beyond cultural boundaries,race-origin and faith,but the Only un-common sense of human differences is the level of information among us.So,the better informed we are, the better we control cyberspace and society we live in,now the idea of bringing Cyberspace to Society with social softwares,internet,and so called semantically enhanced internet (Semantic Web) there is a need to know who is informing whom,prevailing not only the knowledge but also the wisdom and to save the socitey from the threat of information hijacking.

The sharing of meta-data about knowledge and experience is interesting,but there is need to follow some principles when collaborating in social environment,something like politeness principles [pdf] or Grice's Conversational Maxims and Principles of Language, knowledge is useful if it is learned from un-biased collaborations,trustable sources and non-invasive implications.

since "Geeks" keep reputation for their "Social-Retardness" :),it is needed to know the "role" they play in making techno-society.

Interestingly, Kofi Annan's 2000 speech to the Australian Press Club, where he said "Half the world's population has never made or received a phone call."quoted from Clay Shirky,we believe without checking the accuracy of this statistics because we trust the informer and could infer from our knowledge of world "demography" .

Knowledge about internet and social collaborations on an information highway demands wisdom and priciples of collaborations,specially when knowledge is shared and recommended.
