Squiz IUC 2010 - CPIT - Semantic Content

  1. 1. Friday, 10 June 2011
  2. 2. displaying semantically related content with MySource MatrixFriday, 10 June 2011
  3. 3. today’s talk why it’s done how to go about it (& what I learned) not in depth step-by-step, I created a tutorial for that: http://community.squiz.net/advanced/displaying- semantically-related-content-with-stored-search- pagesFriday, 10 June 2011
  4. 4. semantics a way to give meaning to information RDF & OWL Microformats (hCard, hCalendar etc.)Friday, 10 June 2011
  5. 5. why? information foraging if we think of people as being task (or activity) focused, we want to provide an “information scent” that will lead users to the information that they are looking for.Friday, 10 June 2011
  6. 6. why? progressive disclosure is an interaction design technique that sequences information ... across several screens in order to reduce feelings of overwhelm for the user. by disclosing information progressively, you reveal only the essentials and help the user manage the complexity of feature-rich sites...Friday, 10 June 2011
  7. 7. Metadata & Search vs Tagging & Related Asset Listings Firstly I had a very real problem looking for a solution & I had embarked on using Tagging & Related Asset Listings, but were unhappy with the result (& were told so as well). I critiqued these two mechanisms (twice) to weight up the feasibility of each of the two mechanisms. There are a great number of disadvantages with Tagging & Related Asset Listing, & only one real significant advantage.Friday, 10 June 2011
  8. 8. Metadata & Search This meme was created by Tait Electronics & Squiz NZ This meme uses; A controlled vocabulary (the Thesaurus Asset) Metadata Schema (several usually) Paint Layouts Search Pages (with stored searches) If & when I say tagging/labelling I mean the metadata type, not the MySource Matrix tagging. (& not the folksonomy type either)Friday, 10 June 2011
