    1. Quadratic voting is a procedure that a group of people can use to jointly choose a collective good for themselves. Each person can buy votes for or against a proposal by paying into a fund the square of the number of votes that he or she buys. The money is then returned to voters on a per capita basis. Weyl and Lalley prove that the collective decision rapidly approximates efficiency as the number of voters increases.

    1. To represent our thought structures,we should not start by adopting a language like OWL,asking only ‘‘How can we represent our ideas using thisstructure?’’ Instead, we should ask, ‘‘What are thefundamental characteristics of knowledge-based work,and how should the design of computational tools followfrom them?’

    2. As a user draws a graph, he or she is creating a situation for its set of resources. When the user adds a copy of an existing resource (whether as a node or an edge), Codex now contains multiple situations for that resource: the situation in which it was originally created, and the new situation in which it is being applied

      concept map client

    3. A neutral ontology amounts to a mapping vocabulary that regulates interoperability between terms. In Codex, a common vocabulary can be discovered if one exists, but it is not an a priori requirement to describe knowledge in Codex.

    6. Collaborative filtering is typically used to produce recommendations in e-commerce environments – for instance, based on the books for which a customer has expressed a preference, an online bookseller will recommend other books by examining what others who share those preferences have read. The same connections are possible in Codex, where an inferential situation can be built around any subset of resources that share a time, place, creator, and so on

    10. To represent our thought structures, we should not start by adopting a language like OWL as the Received Pronunciation for our domain, asking only “How can we represent our ideas using this structure?” Instead, we should ask, “What are the fundamental characteristics of knowledge-based work, and how should the design of computational tools follow from them?”

    15. This “ontology-first” model is highly restrictive; it presupposes a structure where there may be none (indeed, the act of manipulating resources in a tool like Codex might be for the very purpose of devising this structure, so imposing one at the start would be futile). Given the emphasis of the present work on structuring knowledge from the bottom up through pragmatic use, Codex takes a “Concept-first” approach.

      concept first futile

    1. The vision that takes us “beyond ontologies” had largely been explored with theAugmentation System that Engelbart created in his NLShalf a century ago on a ‘milli iphone’. With the millionfold increase of computing resource available even to individuals today, we can embark on developing the means to promote the “culture shift” iIbid.] that could lead to collaborative creation of the ‘great chain of emergent meanings’. In this quest we need dynamic mechanisms for recognizing and merging alternative conceptualizations

    5. It is not only that the knowledge we wish to capture expands relentlessly, but also our meta knowledge about what we have learned about how best to organize and use that knowledge. When building a system what seemed a good idea at the “design” time is bound to become a limiting factor, unless we can rebuild the ship while still at sea.

    1. For example, we could define the eg:author property to have a domain of eg:Document and a range of eg:Person, whereas a classical object oriented system might typically define a class eg:Book with an attribute called eg:author of type eg:Person. Using the RDF approach, it is easy for others to subsequently define additional properties with a domain of eg:Document or a range of eg:Person. This can be done without the need to re-define the original description of these classes. One benefit of the RDF property-centric approach is that it allows anyone to extend the description of existing resources, one of the architectural principles of the Web [BERNERS-LEE98].

    1. Awareness and Capacity. Last but not least, a clear commitment to open ac-cess for data and publications from all partners is needed. Managers, research-ers and information managers must understand that sharing will enhance our capacity to create knowledge for agricultural development. They also must understand the instruments that have been created by international standard bodies to achieve this.

    3. Tools for data processing and storing. A selection of the tools currently available for the publishing of interoperable data should be made, according to the requirements and possibilities of the actors represented by CIARD. What we need is then a suite of tools and services to process and store data, that can be installed and used at institutional levels.

    1. With a market-leading ontology linked to Thomson Reuters’ authorities and products, Thomson Reuters Open Calais™ offers the easiest and most accurate way to tag the people, places, companies, facts, and events in your content to increase its value, accessibility and interoperability. How do we do it? We use Natural Language Processing (NLP) and machine learning algorithms trained by hundreds of Thomson Reuters’ Editorial teams for several years to offer the industry’s best combination of company extraction and relevance. For the user, the process is pretty simple. You feed unstructured text into the extraction engine (news articles, blog postings, etc.) to examine your text and locate:

    1. Note: We have recently realized that URIs containing the domain name of an initiative or an institution are not ideal for persistence: we just had to move from the ring.ciard.net domain to the ring.ciard.info domain for administrative reasons and we may lose control of the ciard.net domain in one year. So we decided to gradually move to PURL URIs, either from purl.org or from new initiatives like xmlns.org. RING URIs will become something like http://purl.org/net/ciardring/{resource-type}/{resource-ID} and will resolve to the RDF and HTML versions of the resource at the URL where they are available at that moment. Notice to services using our URIs: there will be a reasonable period of time for the transition from the ciard.net URIs to the PURL URIs and re-direction from the old URIs will be provided for as long as possible.

    1. The way we code the web will determine the way we live online. So we need to bake our values into our code. Freedom of expression needs to be baked into our code. Privacy should be baked into our code. Universal access to all knowledge. But right now, those values are not embedded in the Web.

    1. Unschooling starts with the belief that people are naturally curious, and that school drains us of our curiosity. We don’t need grades or tests to motivate us to learn how to walk or talk, and as toddlers we are endlessly curious and excited to explore the world. The process of schooling — that is, compulsory education dictated by teachers and backed by fear of punishment or embarrassment — demotivates us and keeps us from developing our capacity to set our own paths. RC provides a space that supports rather than hinders curiosity and self-direction.


    1. Resources can be assigned to tasks. Resources can have costs associated in the resources sheet. This results in costs per task for all assigned resources and costs per resource for all assigned tasks. A resource can be charged per hour (work) or per amount (material). A task can be allocated work hours. Summary tasks show the costs of its subtasks.

    1. 'The most dangerous thought that you can have as a creative person is to think that you know what you're doing,' explains Victor. 'Because once you think you know what you're doing you stop looking around for other ways of doing things and you stop being able to see other ways of doing things. You become blind.' He concludes, 'I think you have to say: "We don't know what programming is. We don't know what computing is. We don't even know what a computer is." And once you truly understand that, and once you truly believe that, then you're free, and you can think anything.'"
