Web Based Semantic Communities – Who, How and Why We Might Want Them in the First Place

Lawrence, K. Faith and schraefel, m. c. (2006) Web Based Semantic Communities – Who, How and Why We Might Want Them in the First Place At Web Based Communities 2006, Spain. 26 - 28 Feb 2006.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


This paper describes an investigation undertaken as part of the FicNet Human-Computer Interaction project into the online amateur fiction community. By working with the community to determine current practices and areas of concern we consider how future technologies such as the semantic web might be used to design applications to support the community. As a first step in this process we gathered opinions both from members of the community and from those outside the community who had come into contact with it. Taking this information we consider the community as it is and what it might become.
