Webified terminologies again

Lorcan

My colleagues recently organized a meeting to discuss demand for and potential uses of webified terminologies. A strawman document [pdf] was produced to inform the meeting, which provides some use cases.
A summary report of the meeting is now available.
It seems increasingly clear that if the ‘classic’ terminologies used in our environment are to create value on the web then they themselves have to become web resources, URI-addressable at the concept (or name, or place-name, …) level.
