ANN: Modular Unified Tagging Ontology (MUTO)

Hi all,

we are pleased to announce version 1.0 release of the "Modular Unified 
Tagging Ontology (MUTO)". MUTO is an attempt to unify the core concepts 
of existing tagging ontologies (such as TAGS, TagOnt, MOAT, etc.) in one 
consistent schema. We reviewed available ontologies and created a 
compact core ontology (in OWL Lite) that supports different forms of 
tagging, such as private, group, automatic, and semantic tagging. MUTO 
should thus not be considered as yet another tagging ontology but as a 
unification of existing approaches. We hope it will be useful to the 
community and a helpful starting point for future extensions.
