Semblogging use case: 40.000 digital fotos of destroyed paintings online

Reading the article [1] about the 40.000 digital fotos now online from http://www.zi.fotothek.org/, it occurred to me that this might be an interesting user community for semblogging (semantic blogging). I hope to be able to look into providing a first semblogging facility for such users in some weeks.

Unfortunately, the application uses popup windows and not REST style!

For Semblogging, see my open space presentation slide at TMRA05, included below:

Semblogging with Topic Maps

Motivation
----------
* smart content aggregation of blog entries needs more semantics than just tag clouds
* see e.g. Jack Park‘s elaboration on tagging in his „just for me“ paper
* Semblogging as a special case of semantic annotation in line with DKM (Distributed Knowledge Management)

Prior work
----------
* seminal work by Cayzer (RDF semblogging concept and protoype), citing the XTM book
* redo it, and even better with Topic Maps!
* ideas by Jack Park (on semblogging as an example for Augmented Storytelling)
* idea of Dmitry Bogachev. Prototypical OKS semblogging application by Lars Marius Garshol

Current work
------------
* Developing some Use Cases
* One student implementing in his diploma thesis a prototype coupling blojsom with tmapi and TM engine
* Further work under way looking more into distributed aspects and semantic web services

What to Semblog about?
----------------------
* bibMap or the Topic Map Research and Applications Landscape?
* All TMRA05 participants and community semblogging on Topic Maps? SemWikiBlogging?
* Learning process in a teaching course in information and knowledge management?
[And now added: the collection of 40.000 digital fotos, as discussed above)

Your ideas? Who is interested in what? Who will contribute what?
