Abstract

SWeeTs are self described semantic "tweets". We use these to help generalize tools and demonstrate how services for annotation based projects such Alipi and Indian Digital Heritage utilize these. A SWeeT is an @id type object and a set of attribute value pairs and works best when a set of simple tools are configured to a context. They also separate the messaging and the aggregation platforms. In this talk we discuss how semantic microblogs aid in building a corpus of user generated relationships that link Open Data while becoming a platform for reuse. We also discuss how a set of customizable tools and mobile phone apps have helped in this process, and present a number of applications that would have been very hard to conceptualize without this component. Applications typically see the Web as Open Data in addition to data banks of interest in a specific context.
