With reference to my previous post, I would be interested in recruiting a volunteer to help me in the Semantic Study workshops. I'll make it clear from the outset that there is no money involved, only travel expenses (and a free book!), but there is the opportunity to learn a new skill.
I would like to map the discussion part of the workshops using the OU KMi Compendium tool. This is a freely available tool (not quite open source) which allows a user to map a dialogue as it occurs during a meeting (see examples here and here). There is also a book (cheaper from Amazon) produced by one of the tool developers.
The work involved would be to: a) get familiar with using the tool and then, b) attend each of the 10-15 workshops and map the discussions about how that tool might work using semantic technologies and what infrastructure components (technological, organisational, operational) are first necessary. Itwould probably work as well to spread the load across two people if some group wants to appoint two people to learn this useful technique.
So, if anyone has the time available to undertake this task and is interested in learning the technique of dialogue mapping, please contact me soonish.
