The workshop was a great success. It attracted 85 registered participants. Workshop was introduced by Denny Vrandecic and me where we explained the aim of the workshop and its relevance to enterprise knowledge web research in general and to Active and KIWI project in particular.

in vino veritas

Last Week we have been at the Kick-Off-Meeting of the Kiwi Project in Salzburg, Austria. We've had a great time and getting the people together was quite a success.

KIWI starts agile

Creating a social network through catch and ball game

We are at the kick-off meeting of KIWI project. KIWI started quite well, good atmosphere was established since the morning of the first day. I think it is especially because of the agile games to break the ice :) We have "puzzled" our own program split initially into pieces of puzzle (see the picture, the program is glued to the white board). This way we have actively learned what we can await in these 3 days. We have established a social network by throwing and catching a ball (see the second picture, the network is visible through established threads :)).
