Web N+1 workshop

I spent four days last week at the “Web N+1” workshop in Zurich, which has been written up by Henry Story, Peter Rieser and Dave Levy from Sun and also Bertolt Meyer who presented SkillMap and Andreas Blumauer who gave a presentation the Semantic Web from 50000m down. After these two presentations, even before we had a chance to take in the full enormity of what was presented we went on to discussing how we can move forward with our internal and external systems to give better internal tools. I'm now reflecting on what was said.
However one of the key takeaways from the workshop is that it is not documents that need to be connected as much as people. Can we use tagging in particular and applications like SkillMap to draw the real organisational structure of the organisation, as opposed to the management structure of the company. Both structures are important, however only the management structure is currently known.
