Naplesplus is now CommonTag enabled!
The new CommonTag (see http://commontag.org ) will revolutionize the ease at which tags are shared.
bringing it all together.
Tagging on websites is very common, and very useful.
But how do you let not just people but computers know that there is more information available?
I wish I could describe it better, but here is the description from the homepage of commontags: http://commontag.org
" Common Tag is an open tagging format developed to make content more connected, discoverable and engaging. Unlike free-text tags, Common Tags are references to unique, well-defined concepts, complete with metadata and their own URLs. With Common Tag, site owners can more easily create topic hubs, cross-promote their content, and enrich their pages with free data, images and widgets. "
Now my implementation of CommonTag may not be the greatest, but it should work. Basically (for now) every category (which is a tag) on this site links back to their category pages, not just via a normal href but also via the open tagging standard.
Eventually, the tags will also link back to dbpedia and freebase and other similar places. THAT'S when the power will be seen.
But for now, this basic implementation should tie together "What's a category" in a somewhat more proper manner.
Normalizing categories so that they fit in with what tags exist already out there in the RDFa world will be no easy task.
But it'll happen. For now, though, my little contribution to sindice and the semantic web should improve this brave new world just a little bit.
(now to go back and tag the internal content of this page --- wee)
