Announcement at 2008 SemTech May 18-22, 2008

The Federal Semantic Interoperability Community of Practice (aka SICoP), formally chartered under the Best Practices Committee of the Federal Chief Information Officer's Council (aka CIOC) in 2003 has completed it's work with the SICoP Special Conference 4, February 5, 2008. Its co-chairs, Mills Davis, Project 10x, and Brand Niemann, US EPA, have been recognized for their contributions to fostering semantic interoperability in the Federal Government through a series of white papers, pilots, and conferences during the past 5 years. With the maturation of the Semantic Web and Semantic Technologies, comes the need to apply the work of SICoP to the real-world needs of both government and non-government organizations in a new way so Brand and Mills have created Semanticommunity.Net and Semantic Exchange.Com, respectively, to build on SICoP, but not endorsed by any government or non-government organization. Brand is participating in the 2008 SemTech as a private citizen, not representing the US EPA, but his current work at the US EPA includes the development of Ontologies for EPA's Segment Data Architecture in communities of practice (see new NSF Accounting Ontology CoP) and semantification of emails, documents, and spreadsheets (see full announcement). Mills is presenting his work at multiple sessions at this conference in his new role. Mill's Tutorial on Web 3.0/Semantic Wave Market Outlook said it best in slide 31: What is Value, with the giraffe poking his head above the clouds and thinking: Its' All Good.., and Brand says "it is a blessing to be moved forward, otherwise we fall behind". May 20, 2008, Semantic Technology Conference, San Jose, CA.

Here are some tips on getting started with this wiki:

Contribute content


A browser and an internet connection is all you need to start adding content to wik Wiki. Share ideas and plans through the simple interface. Click the "Edit Page" and "New page" buttons on each page to begin contributing content.

Create mashups

wik Wiki supports boatloads of extensions - these are little features which allow you to embed content from other websites. For example, you can embed Google Maps, Windows Live Maps, AND Yahoo! Maps, all on the same page. You can also dynamically manipulate images using our ImageMagick extension.

There's so much you can do, so learn all about available extensions in your wik Wiki by clicking the "Extensions List" tab (when the editor loads), or by viewing the Extensions page on OpenGarden.

Share media

Attach photos, files, and all sorts of media to any page to share with your community. Files and images are revisioned, just like pages, so you'll always be able to retrieve older files.

Track changes

Did somebody make a change to a page that was bad? Use the revert feature to change the contents of a page back to an older version. You'll never lose any work in wik Wiki.

The instructions on this page do not match the page I am seeing (there is no wik Wiki in the panel and my 'New Page' button is not enabled).
