Abstract:     (1Q)

OntologPSMW: Debut, Tutorial and Possibilities -
[ intro slides]

by: PeterYim (Ontolog; CIM3)     (1Q1)

From the beginning of ONTOLOG back in 2002, this community has been thriving in a collaborative work environment (CWE). Our CWE has included a wiki, almost from the start, which served as a shared display and a collaborative authoring workspace, and a content repository for this CoP and the related communities that its been hosting (like OOR, IAOA, OntologySummit, to name a few.) Until now the "wiki engine" in use has been "PurpleWiki" which is a variant of usemod wiki, with PurpleNumbers and other enhancements developed by EugeneKim and ChrisDent.     (1Q2)

Ontolog is about ready to move on, to a richer wiki platform. The "wiki engine" we will be progressing to, is "Purple SemanticMediaWiki (PSMW)". This move has been contemplated since about the time we ran the SemanticWiki mini-series here, back in the 2008/2009 time frame. The plan now, is to deploy an OntologPSMW starting in January 2013, and do parallel runs (with both wiki platforms in production) as the community gets familiar with the new wiki and collaboratively explore how to leverage the new capabilities.     (1Q3)

Invited to present at this session are KenBaclawski and YaronKoren. Ken co-led the psmw-dev team (with PeterYim) that has been developing the pmwx (purple mediawiki extension) as an enhancement to MediaWiki, as well as other tools and features in OntologPSMW. Yaron is among one of the most prominent and prolific developers in the SemanticMediaWiki space. Extensions developed by Yaron, like Semantic Forms and Semantic Drilldown are practically defacto standards for almost everyone working with SemanticMediaWiki's.     (1Q4)

YaronKoren has just recently published his new book entitled "Working with MediaWiki" - a brilliant work that fills a long overdue need to make MediaWiki's and SemanticMediaWiki's more accessible to a wider user-base. He will be giving us a tutorial at this session based on some of the most useful material he has covered in that book.     (1Q5)

After the two presentations, we will have an extended Q&A and open discussion segment, where the community will have a chance to get answers to questions they have in mind. We will also discuss what the potentials and possibilities might be, after we have PSMW at our disposal. Among those possibilities is the use of OntologPSMW to enrich the upcoming OntologySummit2013 content and deliverables, or other initiatives where crowdsourcing may be a paradigm.     (1Q6)
