Platypus Wiki

This article describes PlatypusWiki, an enhanced Wiki Wiki Web using technologies from the Semantic Web. Platypus Wiki offers a simple user interface to create Wiki pages including metadata according to W3C standards. It uses RDF, RDF Schema and OWL to manage the metadata and create ontologies. We present the essential features of what we have called a Semantic Wiki Wiki Web, showing how the existing Wiki WikiWeb can be improved and how we have implemented these features in Platypus Wiki. Platypus Wiki is a rapid and useful Personal Knowledge Management system, as well as a valuable tool to manage Communities of Practice.
