Online communities are islands of people and topics that are not interlinked. Complementary discussions exist on disparate systems but it is currently difficult to exploit the available distributed information. A Semantically Interlinked Online Community (SIOC) can enable efficient information dissemination across communities by creating an ontology that(More)
In this paper we describe a distributed architecture consisting of a combination of scripting tools that interact with each other in order to help to find and query decentralized RDF data. Thanks to this architecture , anyone can participate in the collaborative discovery of Semantic Web documents by simply browsing the web. This system is useful for(More)
Data portability has become an important requirement on the Social Web. This paper describes how data and social network porta-bility can be achieved by building upon existing Semantic Web developments such as SIOC and FOAF. The SIOC project provides a common format for expressing user-generated content in a machine-readable form and tools for import/export(More)
While microblogging has quickly gained a lot of interest in the Web 2.0 community, it still has not been leveraged to the Semantic Web unlike blogs and wikis. This paper describes the features, methods and architecture of a distributed Semantic Web microblogging system, as well as the implementation of an initial prototype of this concept that provides ways(More)
