Hi Anupriya, all,

I think that we can keep the title proposed by Tom, basically because
it is shorter and general enough to include the people-to-people
interaction through data (as an intermediary).

However, I think this is a concept that must be made explicit in the
workshop description and topics because it is the key feature in Web
2.0 and where the SW contribution should be very valuable.

I would also like to propose other facet for the workshop description,
which does not require any title change :-) The idea is to make the
whole thing more appealing to HCI people not used to SW terms, more
concretely Information Architecture (IA) people.

What about presenting the Semantic Web as a way to attain more
expressive and open information architectures. The increased
expressivity is available thanks to ontologies that can be used by the
information systems. Openness is attained thanks to the fact that
ontologies are in the Web (Web Ontologies) and that IAs can be made
available through RDF metadata.

The idea is that open IAs can facilitate mashups (a hot topic) but
also the intra-organisational integration of information coming from
different sources in corporate sites and intrawebs.

What do you think?

PD: I have already added the UCD description to the wiki
