Great thanks to all of you for your effort devoted to this thread!
I work with information for years and got very tired of many different software packages I have to use to handle data. Thus I started my personal small research in order to verify the best available options for the note-taking + web-clipping + data/knowledge-management + research-tool software. This is how I came across this thread and was very lucky with it since I found some very interesting ideas here.
So, what is the most resent situation in this area? Do we have any conclusions? Is it a good idea to start round 2?
Here is a nice list of the research tools:http://www.researchresources.info/
What about the use of semantic technologies, has anyone got any good experience with any applications from the discussion topic that are empowered with those? Those are the technologies (RDF, schemas, ontologies, query languages, etc.) that have their main strength in operations with data (to describe/annotate, link, query, etc.), thus, have to be very valuable for the applications we discuss.
Here are few examples:
• NEPOMUK Semantic Desktop:http://nepomuk.semanticdesktop.org/
It is available in two forms, as Java application (cross-platform) and as an integrated part of KDE.
It is the Firefox extension but not only
• Hypertext Knowledge Workbench:http://semanticweb.org/wi...rtext_Knowledge_Workbench
A very young yet project
