Dear Antoine,
(CC. Guus)

We discussed  at ISWC about SWD-WG and SKOS work your and Guus are involved
in, and I promised to send you information concerning our ONKI Ontogy 
for SKOS.

The idea of ONKI is simple: Using (SKOS) ontologies as mash-up applications
analogous to Google Maps mash-ups!  I think this kind of systems are
desperately needed for adding ontology support cost-effectively to legacy
systems and to enhance SW deployment, and organisations in Finland are very
enhusiastic about this.  ONKI is a server for publishing  SKOS vocabularies
(and ontologies) with minimal costs for humans (by browser + semantic
autocompletion) and machines (via AJAX and web services).

Online demos are available at (see especially the "ONKI annotation demo"


Following new submitted papers explain the point:
