Dear all,

as a part of my PhD in Hypios [1], I am working on identifying experts on
the Web (escepially the Social Web) in order to find potential problem
solvers for particular problems on Hypios. Hypios is a marketplace for
problems and solutions trying to connect companies with particular (R&D)
problems, and people who can solve them. As the Web has become a place full
of traces of users' activities, connections, etc. we believe that we can
retrieve those traces and make a jugement of peoples' competences. My PhD is
about using Semantic Web to do this.

As a first step, we look at the Linked Data Cloud [2] for evidences of
users' competence (research articles, interests, wiki pages, other
user-generated content, etc.). Since the original LOD cloud doesn't make the
job of finding competence-related sources very easy, I have made a map of
Linked Data sources that contain evidence of users' competence. The map
should be useful to all the people building Semantic Web applications that
deal with users' competences. I would like to share this map with you and
get your comments and suggestions for improvement

You can find the map here:
and a corresponding blog post here:

If you find anything missing, or have any ideas how to improve it, please do
send your comments (by e-mail, or even better - directly on the page in the
comment form).

I thank you in forward.

Best regards,
