The phenomenon known as Web logging ("blogging") has helped realize an initial goal of the Web: to turn Web content consumers (i.e., end users) into Web content producers. As the Semantic Web unfolds, we feel there are two questions worth posing: (1) do blog entries have semantic structure that can be usefully captured and exploited? (2) is blogging a natural way to encourage growth of the Semantic Web? We explore empirical evidence for answering these questions in the affirmative and propose… 
Using Semantics to Enhance the Blogging Experience
TLDR
This paper identifies structural and content-related metadata as the kinds of semantic metadata which are relevant in the domain of blogging and discusses an implementation for creating such metadata in a convenient and unobtrusive way for the user.
Title Harvesting Desktop Data for Semantic Blogging
TLDR
This paper proposes that the recent phenomenon of blogging, combined with a tool to easily generate Semantic Web data from existing formal desktop data, can result in a form of semantic blogging which would help to overcome the aforementioned problem.
OntoBlog : Informal Knowledge Management by Semantic Blogging
TLDR
OntoBlog is a prototype semantic blogging system which attempts to facilitate informal knowledge management in blogs by interlinking related blog entries by semi-automatic semantic annotation of blog entries with ontology instances.
What next for Semantic Blogging
TLDR
The history of semantic blogging is reviewed, a snapshot of where the authors are now is presented, and a personal take on some promising future directions is offered, including two of my current experiments.
Using Semantic Web, Ontologies and Blogs for Knowledge Identification, Organisation and Reuse
TLDR
The aim of the research is to realise the knowledge management processes of identification, organisation and reuse via the blogging environment for them to be available to users in a seamless application.
Realization of Semantic Atom Blog
TLDR
This shortcoming is addressed by exploring OWL knowledge modeling, semantic annotation and semantic categorization techniques in an Atom blog sphere, and by adopting these techniques, futuristic Atom blogs can be created and deployed over the Internet.
An Analysis of Bloggers and Topics for a Blog Recommender System
TLDR
It is shown that the blog domain is characterised by bloggers moving frequently from topic to topic and that blogger activity closely tracks events in the real world.
Can Weblogs and Microblogs Change Traditional Scientific Writing?
TLDR
It is concluded that an amazing potential and a new way to work with information is opened when using microblogging and the question whether this method can change the learning outcome into a more reflective one is addressed.
The two cultures: mashing up web 2.0 and the semantic web
TLDR
This paper outlines a semantic weblogs scenario that illustrates the potential for combining Web 2.0 and Semantic Web technologies, while highlighting the unresolved issues that impede its realization.

Haystack: A Platform for Authoring End User Semantic Web Applications
TLDR
This paper presents a comprehensive platform for constructing end user applications that create, manipulate, and visualize arbitrary RDF-encoded information, adding another layer to the abstraction cake and discusses a programming environment specifically designed for manipulating RDF.
How to make a semantic web browser
TLDR
This work builds an end user application that automatically locates metadata and assembles point-and-click interfaces from a combination of relevant information, ontological specifications, and presentation knowledge, all described in RDF and retrieved dynamically from the Semantic Web.
A Unified Abstraction for Messaging on the Semantic Web
TLDR
Basic concepts from the Semantic Web and RDF are used to unify and model these seemingly disparate messaging paradigms and a generalized user interface for messaging is demonstrated that uses the data model developed.
Collections: flexible, essential tools for information management
TLDR
It is argued that systems should expose a single unified concept of collection and that concepts such as portals, cross-application projects, customized menus, and e-mail-task unification come about naturally as a result of this abstraction.
User Interfaces for Supporting Multiple Categorization
TLDR
This paper carries out user studies providing evidence that compared to the folder paradigm, multiple categorization not only improves organization and retrieval times but also matches more closely with the way users naturally think about organizing their information.
RDF Authoring Environments for End Users
TLDR
This paper presents user interface paradigms based on the idea that an object can be represented on the screen by an extensible family of views, and presents several strategies for allowing users to create RDF metadata by manipulating views, including a drag and drop form-based property editor and a viewbased graph editor.
Creating Semantic Web Contents with Protégé-2000
TLDR
The authors describe how Protege-2000, a tool for ontology development and knowledge acquisition, can be adapted for editing models in different Semantic Web languages.
Sticky notes for the semantic web
TLDR
A generalized annotation environment that supports richer forms of description such as natural language and the idea of a question answering interface that allows retrieval based both on the text of the annotations and the annotations associated metadata is proposed.
A Closer Look at Why People Blog
Introduction Weblogs, or blogs, are online journals. While definitions vary, we define blogs as a series of archived Internet posts typically characterized by brief texts entered in reverse
