Open Repositories 2007: Richard Rodgers on SIMILE

January 25, 2007

Richard presented the various tools that have come from the SIMILE project. While he was demonstrating Timeline Mark Diggory leant over to me and sotto voce’d “we’re going to be looking at building this stuff into a Manakin aspect”, which will be very, very cool.

Also exciting was Richard’s demo of DWell (as in DSpace + Longwell), which I’ve blogged about before. It looks great, and the applications for curation Richard mentioned are going to be really important – faceted browsing makes it really easy to see outliers and typos in metadata.

Update: DWell demo.
