Building Web Reputation Systems

Grammar updated. 26th , 2:20AM

An interesting article is featured in Coding Horror today.

 Is about learning from the past and how to take in consideration history in the present scenario of Computer Science and of Web Development.

There were pioneers too in this field of the industry, and most of the things we are talking about in our days, were ready, maybe deployed, a decade or more ago. At least, if thy memoir serves you well.
Instead of trying to push the community in the direction we thought it should go, an exercise rather like herding mice, we tried to observe what people were doing and aid them in it.
The excerpt before is quoted in the book "Building Web Reputation Systems", authored by Mr. Randy Farmer.
Building Web Reputation Systems helps you ask the hard questions about these underlying mechanisms, and why they're critical for any organization that draws from or depends on user-generated content. It's a must-have for system architects, product managers, community support staff, and UI designers.

An interesting article that lead us to a more interesting discovery: The web has an history, conformed by a past, a future and a present tense made of user generated content. Like every human related activity has.

btw, I am old enough to remember the web before memcached was invited to to dinner at home. 

Don't Talk About

The problem with failure isn’t the failing itself, it’s the shroud of anxiety that precedes it. It’s a constant reminder that you may have made a mistake, lost money, wasted time, and ruined your reputation. It haunts you endlessly, and it rarely stops when you have a breakthrough moment.
A serious approach - hereby obviating the mentioned gimlets - written by Mr. Will Schroter , that you might want to read here.

Useful, even if you - dearest reader -have never been a young entrepreneur.

Semantic Digital Archives

The Semantic Digital Archives (SDA) workshop series fosters innovative discussion of knowledge representation and knowledge management solutions specifically designed for improving Archival Information Systems (AISs). Novel applications of semantic Web technologies and Linked Data offer possibilities to advance approaches to digital curation and preservation.
They intend to have an open discussion on topics related to the general subject of Semantic Digital Archives. Hence, their welcome contributions that focus on, but are not limited to:
  • Archival information systems (AIS).
  • AIS Architectures.
  • Archival information infrastructure frameworks (AII).
  • Ontologies & linked data for AIS, AII and digital libraries.
  • Logical theories for digital archives & digital preservation.
  • Knowledge evolution.
  • (Semantic) provenance models. 
  • Contextualization of archives. 
  • Semantic long-term storage & hardware organization for AIS & AII. 
  • Semantic extensions of emulation/virtualization methodologies tailored for AIS/AII.
  • Semantic multimedia AIS, AII & multimedia libraries.
  • Implementations & evaluations of (semantic) AIS, AII & semantic digital libraries. 
  • Preservation of scientific and research data.
  • Preservation of work flow processes.
  • Semantic search & semantic information retrieval in digital archives and digital libraries.
  • Implementations and evaluations of semantic digital archives. 
  • User studies focusing on end-user needs and information seeking behavior of end-users. 
  • Web Archives.
  • (Semantic) Preservation Processes and Protocols.
  • Semantic (Web) services implementing AIS & AII.
  • Information integration/semantic ingest (e.g. from digital libraries). 
  • Trust for ingest & data security/integrity check for long-term storage of archival records. 
  • Semantic extensions of emulation/virtualization methodologies for digital archives. 
  • Migration strategies based on Semantic Web technologies.
In bold, my areas of expertise. But I will not be able to send any proposal for this event.

Maybe you, you are willing to. If true, please submit your original, unpublished research papers related to the aforementioned topics.

Your mom would be very proud.
