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.

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

Im Interview: Michael Dreusicke, Gründer, CEO PAUX Technologies, Berlin

Täglich entstehen an fast allen Flecken der Erde und in den Wolken jede Menge von Informationen / liegen Myriaden von Text, Grafiken, Bilder, etc. herum und wer diese braucht, wem sie nutzen /würden) findet sie dann und dort wo er sie gerade braucht nicht [und kann damit auch den Urheber / Provider nicht entlohnen]. Tagging allein bringt es irgendwie nicht und so stellt sich die Frage, könnte ein (mehr) semantisch organisiertes Web Abhilfe schaffen (bzw. vorbereiten könnte)?

Michael Dreusicke
(43), Gründer und Geschäftsführer von PAUX Technologies, Berlin ist davon überzeugt. Deshalb haben wir für Sie nachgefragt. Hier sind seine Antworten (per eMail):

Können Sie sich unseren Lesern kurz persönlich vorstellen?

In meinem ersten Leben habe ich Schlagzeug studiert (Jazz, Nebenfach Klavier) und danach ein Tonstudio für Werbung und Musikproduktion betrieben.

In meinem zweiten Leben habe ich Jura studiert (Schwerpunkt Steuerrecht) und kurz vor dem Ersten Examen im Jahr 2000 einen Verlag gegründet, mit dem ich eine Lernplattform entwickelte und Autoren verschiedener Disziplinen zur Verfügung stellte. Ergänzend absolvierte ich noch eine Psychotherapie-Ausbildung, in der es schwerpunktmäßig um Lösungsorientierung, Systemik und NLP ging.

Mein drittes und aktuelles Leben begann, als ich 2009 nach Berlin zog und Anfang 2010 die PAUX Technologies GmbH als Software-Produktionsfirma aus dem Verlag ausgründete. Hier geht es im Kern um Publikationstechnologie, die die wechselseitige Kommunikation zwischen Autoren und Lesern unterstützt.

Womit genau beschäftigt sich Ihr Unternehmen PAUX Technologies?

Wir entwickeln und vertreiben eine Software zur intelligenten Produktionsumgebung für Texte und Multimedia in der Cloud, also ein neuartiges Content Management System namens PAUX, das auf personalisierte Online-Publikation ausgerichtet ist.

PAUX verbessert die Qualität, Auffindbarkeit, Zitier- und Annotationsmöglichkeit ihres Texts durch geschickt verknüpfte Hintergrund-Informationen für unterschiedliche Nutzergruppen, Facebook-Anbindung mit Rückkanal bis hin zu Trainings- und Lernmöglichkeiten durch E-Learning.

Max-Planck-Gesellschaft kündigt Rahmen-Lizenzvertrag mit Springer Verlag

Der bisherige Lizenzvertrag stellte den unbeschränkten Zugang aller MPG Institute zu den rund 1.200 Zeitschriften des Springer Verlages (Springer-Link) sicher. Der geforderterte Preis liegt jedoch wesentlich über den Vorstellungen der MPG - die sich auf die Auswertung der Nutzerstatistiken und den Angeboten anderer Wissenschaftsverlage stützen.

Das Hauptproblem ist m.E. jedoch, dass die Ergebnisse wissenschaftlicher Arbeit, oft gefördert mit öffentlichen Mitteln, von den wissenschaftlichen Verlagen (SMT Publisher) "abgefischt" werden und dann für teuer Geld wieder an die Wissenschaft und Bibliotheken verkauft werden (und oft wieder mit öffentlichen Geldern bezahlt werden).

Übrigens, die MPG gehört zu den Initiatoren der "Berlin Declaration on Open Access to Knowledge in the Sciences and the Humanities", die den freien Zugang zu den Ergebnissen der öffentlich geförderten Forschung fordert.

Ich denke, das bisherige Vermarkter(Take-It-All)-Modell ist nicht mehr lange zu halten, die Karten werden neu gemischt! Newsletter:
