  • 21. Lessons learned (1) Line organization – limited staff time and resources for projects – Support of hierarchy levels – longer start-up time needed Patterns of interpretation in the humanities and social sciences – privilege of interpretation by curators – high degree of specialization (experts) – traditional publication process (linear, one-way) (draft – editing – publication) Further training offered12.07.2012 Data Stories (Lotico CSW - The Berlin Semantic Web Meetup) 21
  • 22. Lessons learned (2) Criticism  Hypertext – too many links – Hypertext is text which is – confusing not constrained to be linear. – incomplete (What is HyperText) Questions – linear documents in the humanities and social – why should I write sciences (books, articles, ...) – what to write  no experience with collaborative – Is it allowed to write here communities without consulting my supervisor? Problems – My text is not finished yet. – This information is not meant for everyone.12.07.2012 Data Stories (Lotico CSW - The Berlin Semantic Web Meetup) 22
