Abstract. In order use our personal data within our day to day activities, we need to manage it in a way that is easy to consume, which currently is not an easy task. People have found their own ways to organize their personal data, such as categorizing files in folders, labeling emails etc. This is acceptable to a certain degree, since we have to deal with have some (human) difficulties such as our limited capacity of categorization and our incapacity of maintaining highly structured artifacts for long periods of time. We believe that to organize this great amount of personal data, we need the help of our communities. In this work, we apply the emergent semantics field to personal data management, aiming to decrease our cognitive efforts spent in simple tasks, handling semantic evolution in conjunction with our close peers.
