A RESTful interface to Annotations on the Web

without comments

Annotation data is stored and manipulated in various formats and there have been a number of efforts to build generalised models of annotation to support sharing of data between tools. This work has shown that it is possible to store annotations from many different tools in a single canonical format and allow transformation into other formats as needed. However, moving data between formats is often a matter of importing or exporting from one tool to another. This paper describes a web-based interface to annotation data that makes use of an abstract model of annotation in its internal store but is able to deliver a variety of annotation formats to clients over the web.

Presented at the The 2nd Linguistic Annotation Workshop (The LAW II) at LREC2008, Marrakech.

The Machine is Us/ing Us

without comments

Here’s an excellent video talking about text, hypertext, touching on the internals of HTML and XML and how Web 2.0 has changed the role of the reader. The web is using us, to tag, classify and label the stuff we write so that we can find it.
