Martin Hochmeister claims that his Semantic Web Company, generate semantic use cases that enhance knowledge productivity through semantic web technologies that connect and situate data in a meaningful contextual structure that resembles the mind-brain network for organizing info and experience.

Random notes for the bricoleur:
The process behind the blog
An email from my Twitter account told me I was being followed by digitalassetman @ twitter
When this happens unless the tweeter’s avatar suggests an obviously 100% market-motivation, I skim read a bit to get a sense of the author/tweeter’s style, form, content and context. Hochmeister’s article provides succinct language relating to a use of the semantic web that does not interpret knowledge management as uniquely a commodity management. While Hochmeister’s main interest is as a business offering products and services, his skillful use of language his writing may prove to be a quotable resource. I will follow more through twitter and on his blog from time to time.
I am looking for the most precise, efficient terms for what is being done in the name of the semantic web in 2008.
I have been exploring interconnectivity between a myriad of open source Semantic Web services and products. The methodical slow process of linking is not unlike a digital sudoka where urls are lined up instead of numbers.
How did Hochmeister code his blog’s .jpg so that digg.com automatically-generated the appropriate 100 pixel image as an image option for diggers to associate with his post?

Digg is a popular social news site and a User Generated Content Site. Registered Digg.com users can submit stories they want to promote to digg and users click-vote to digg or undigg the submission.
Digg.com limits entries to categories and subcategories as shown in this image. (draft: in process).
In his February 19, 2008 article entitled “Digg Gets More Mainstream; But Are Their News Sources Too Narrow Now?” ReadWriteWeb‘s Richard MacManus (2008) questioned the number of digg frontpages certain sites received between c. January 19 and February 19, 2008. Ars Technica = 87; Gizmodo = 84; Engadget = 67; Torrentfreak = 36; Techcrunch = 12; Valleywag = 9; ReadWriteWeb = 6; Mashable = 4; Gigaom = 4; VentureBeat = 2; CenterNetworks = 1.
These sites are under the category Technology which has subcategories as illustrated in this image.
One reader commented that Ars Technica used better code which automatically generated a title and description for articles submitted to digg.
When I dugg this article, using Ars Technica button it did generate it’s own title and description.

Ars Technica, (art of technology) was founded in c. 2000 to provide original news and reviews, analysis of technology trends, and expert advice by authors who are technically savvy, knowledgable in human arts, sciences as well as in law and politics. Ars writers express strongly-held opinions but use measured judgments to carefully relay contexts so they never devolve into becoming dogmatic or attempting to become a new form of computing religion. Without art, knowledge is nothing (sine ars, scientia nihil est) and technology is the “art” at the forefront of the 21st century.
