With the Luxid community platform TEMIS conveys the concept of "app stores" in the realm of semantics and bring specialized provider of semantic services / components together on one side and users / customers on the other side.

Developer and provider can address a wide spread market and hard to find potential customers. And enquirer will find out, that a lot of questions and tasks are already addressed by components available on the platform.

Event: APE 2013 Conference, January 28 - 30, Berlin

The 8th Academic Publishing Conference Europe is just three weeks away, time to decide to take part and make reservations accordingly. The illustrious and distinguished program committee has chosen the motto 'The Funding of Publishing. Changes and Consequences for Science and Society' - the lowest common denominator they could agree on, it shows the handwriting of the publishers group and it doesn't sound dialogical at all. [That's my version, anyway]

My favorite theme would have been, 'Rethinking and Building the new interface between the science community and the public(s)', but you can't always carve it yourself.

7th APE 2012 Conference Semantic Web, Data and Publishing - Day 2 - live -

Yesterday on #APE2012 we heared a lot about the new golden age of academic / scholar / educational publishers. Golden Publishing and if the world wants it, Golden Open Access. As the Internet was the last innovation and interruption publisher had / have to deal with and publishers should go back into the publishing business with Golden Content (Access for publishers). Some thin voices on the conference argued that is a good (high) time to prepare for the Silver Age of Publishing with Silber bells and whistles, and if the payer insists on, also prepare some Silver services ...

Lets see what the conference speakers and discussions today will add to the picture, change the picture, e.g. Green Open Access on the Blue Planet. Todays program starts with

7th APE 2012 Pre-Conference Semantic Web, Data and Publishing

The Perfect Storm: Google, social media, mobile devices, data, e-books, power browsing and disintermediation

David Nicholas (CIBER Research): Nothing has changed in academic publishing, but all
• Search shows, people spend only a few minutes, read only short article (or just the abstract) download (and forget) Online the read horizontal not vertical. It is about finding, not about reading.
• People cut and past, everyone does it (only outside the academic world?), you don't know, where it originated.
• Search, checking, light reading will move largely to the mobile and user pay for it

Why mobile access really interesting (quote from the presentation)

• Massively popular: mobile devices used more and more for accessing the Web for information and forecasted to be the platform of choice in a few years, so the tail could wag the dog.
• Cool and social. So extend the reach of websites and draw in a wider range of people
• Considerably widens access to weekends and outside of traditional office hours.
• No boundaries. Search on the move, virtually anywhere and at any time – and in the social space
• People pay to use them. Mobile consumers used to paying to access information
• Restricted functionality. Mobile user presented with a simplified ‘lite’ interface, without some of the search functionality available to the PC user
• Not all the same. Big difference between tablets, smart phones and BlackBerrys
• The big question. Clearly then web use via mobile phone & tablet offers a different user experience from the desk-bound PC so will have an impact on information use and seeking behaviour.
• Ask a young person about their library and they will point to their phone
• And then there is iPhone 4S!

Big issues for publishers
