Hi all!

I'd like to introduce you to a project that you may find interesting. It
didn't start as specifically semantic web related, but perhaps that's one of
the reasons that it may bring a new perspective to it.

There are many aspects to the project, but related to semantic web I'd like
to bring forward a few characteristics that you may find of particular
interest.

- Whereas software and hardware platforms come and go frequently, the
essence of knowledge and methods may last from generations to generations.

- To be able/willing to build on top of somebody else's work, you need to
trust its future existance and predictable behaviour.

- There are lots of great free software and utils out there even today, but
due to incompatibilities and overall complexity to setup a working
environment, they are often out of the reach of most of us. Or it's just not
worth the trouble. You'd rather contribute to your own field of expertise.

Our project Finndesign Liitin is addressing these issues in a new way, yet
trying to keep it very simple to the user. You pretty much just walk/log
into a ready-made environment, and will have access to all personal and
public data and methods in a compatible and persistent manner.

Please, have a look at the project page for details at
http://liitin.finndesign.fi

Eventhough I'm very interested in things that semantic web is addressing, my
primary field of expertise is in user interface design (industrial design
education). Therefore I'd be very interested in your professional opinion on
how Liitin might be suitable for your needs, or how it may need to be
tweaked in order to suit it better.

The project page may not cover all details, so I'd be glad answer any
questions.


Best regards,
Jukka Tuominen, Finndesign
