I got an opportunity to present my paper titled “StYLiD: Structured Information Sharing with User-defined Concepts” in the annual conference of Japanese Business Model Society (Biz-model 2008) held at the university of Tokyo, October 11, 2008. Thanks to assoc. prof. Yutaka Matsuo for organizing the session on “Web technology and business models”. My presentation was special because it was the only presentation in English in the conference :-P. However, the audience seemed to be quite interested and I received some important questions, including some in Japanese that were translated to me in English 🙂
It would be interesting to explore business models or practical applications for StYLiD and receive suggestions from the business community in the future as well. It would be better to serve applications to targeted groups who are really in need rather than trying hard to motivate general people to contribute.
