A Semantic Wiki Wiki Web

Platypus Wiki is a project to develop an enhanced Wiki Wiki Web with ideas borrowed from the Semantic Web.

It offers a simple user interface to create wiki pages with metadata based on W3C standards.

It uses RDF (Resource Description Framework), RDF Schema and OWL (Web Ontology Language) to create ontologies and manage metadata.

Platypus Wiki is an ongoing open source project started on 23th December 2003. The project is actually hosted on SourceForge and licensed under GNU GPL.
