OPO Project has been moved to DERI's server and got a new web address. Project can now be found at http://online-presence.net. From now on, the OPO ontology is going to be maintained by the GOOD OLD AI and DERI members together in order to create a highly functional and widely used vocabulary for representing users presence online.
Members of our group have founded the NetBeans User Group for Serbia - NUGS. The group's main objective is to explore and share experience with NetBeans IDE and NetBeans Platform. We see the NetBeans Platform as a very productive environment for creating feature rich, modern Java desktop applications. Therefore, we want to use it for our own projects. The NUGS site is at http://nugs.wikispaces.comhttp://www.netbeans-serbia.org/.
It is a great pleasure to annonce that since December 10, 2009, we have another PhD in our network - Marko Boskovic has successfully and brilliantly defended his PhD thesis, Model-Driven Performance Measurement and Assessment with Relational Traces, at the University of Oldenburg, Germany.
Our initiative for the Online Presence Ontology (OPO) has been mentioned in the new book "Social Semantic Web" by Breslin, Passant and Decker (page 246). This book represents and excellent overview of the domain, by the very inventors and thaught-leaders in the field. As we can see the more and more initiatives to bring Social Web sites as important sources of Web content, closer to the Semantic Web, thus enriching them and making the most out of user-generated content, we may say that the book comes at the right time. We strongly recommend this book as a valuable contributuion to the Web Science literature.
