[ba-unrev-talk] Peter Van Dijck: Info Architect IAWiki XFML and Evolt.org

Fascinating bootstrap info about Peter Van Dijck's (info architect) web
sites regarding human nature and corporate morality (cognitive
psychology & ethnography), including his Evolt.org that implements his
eXchangable Faceted Metadata Language <  http://xfml.org > for
exchanging metadata between websites.    (01)

   * Background and concepts.
     "XFML is a format based on topicmaps, an extremely advanced
     metadata format. It is optimized for sharing and connecting
     (faceted) metadata categories between different websites.    (02)

     Conceptually, in XFML metadata is separated (as topics) from
     content: you create a map that exists on its own, regardless
     of whether you have any content that relates to the map. This
     provides a lot of power in that it allows you to work with
     your map as an entity of its own, you can import facets of
     other maps, merge topics and so on. It contrasts with the
     approach taken by many other metadata schemes where the
     metadata is kept in or with the document."    (03)

   * Evolt.org & IAWiki XFML Implementation
     "Evolt.org is a world community for web developers, promoting the
     mutual free exchange of ideas, skills and experiences.    (04)

     What "evolt" means: "evolt" combines the best elements of
     evolution, revolution, with a bit of voltage thrown in for good
     measure. "evolt" embodies our goals and enthusiasm!"
