Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Other)


This paper considers two of three related projects that are currently being undertaken as part of a larger Human-Computer Interaction investigation into whether the semantic web can be brought to hobbyist groups on the Internet. The user group chosen as a case study for this project was online amateur fiction community. This community was chosen because it could benefit from Semantic Services in the form of improved searching, improved meta data, automatic recommendation amalgamations, trust-webs and personalisation of such systems. This paper descibes how user-requirements were gathered and how the Semantic Web could be integrated with current practice.
