This is a resource for people who are interested in design, usability, information architecture and software development; people who also see the importance of thinking about the impact of the Semantic Web and open Linked Data. Explore the presentations, follow the example links, and try things for yourself. Then apply them in your projects. Then tell your friends.
There is a significant amount of power and opportunity that has come from the simple act of naming the relationships between items of data - whether the data are individual items in data sets or full Web pages. We want to put that power in the hands of users, and make their experience easy and effective.
Slides are available online for Duane's presentation on design approaches that can be applied by semantic technology developers, and anyone interesting in improving the user experience.
Jasmin and Duane present examples and techniques that help your users get the greatest value from your data. Along the way, you can move them from consumers to curators to creators of richer linked data - semantic data sites can benefit more than most from the evolution of user involvement, from consumers to curators to creators of data and rich relationships. Everyone benefits from the ‘citizen collaborator’!
