We menen dat de computer doet wat wij willen. Maar het is veelal andersom.

In comes in different forms: design thinking, social CRM, service-dominant logic, value co-creation. But it’s not pervasive at this point...
On the Semantic Web, vocabularies define the concepts and relationships (also referred to as “terms”) used to describe and represent an area of concern. Vocabularies are used to classify the terms that can be used in a particular application, characterize possible relationships, and define possible constraints on using those terms. In practice, vocabularies can be very complex (with several thousands of terms) or very simple (describing one or two concepts only).
There is no clear division between what is referred to as “vocabularies” and “ontologies”. The trend is to use the word “ontology” for more complex, and possibly quite formal collection of terms, whereas “vocabulary” is used when such strict formalism is not necessarily used or only in a very loose sense. Vocabularies are the basic building blocks forinference techniques on the Semantic Web.

The process of creating articles is becoming increasingly difficult for new users due to increasingly restrictive criteria and the speed at which their articles are tagged and deleted. This trend is concerning because new users tend to leave the wiki when their work is deleted.
The English Wikipedia Articles for Creation WikiProject has recently adjusted in order to encourage new editors to create draft articles outside of the usual article space. However, it's unclear whether such initiatives are successful in improving the success rate of articles created by new editors or improving their retention. In this study, we'll discuss our analysis of newcomer created articles in the most active Wikipedia projects and answer questions about how different workflows affect the success rate of articles.
Many companies find themselves at a crossroads. The next few years will decide which business models will survive and which will undergo sweeping changes. Technological evolution, the modern consumer and the total market compel us to answer that one crucial question: who is prepared to re-invent their company as well as themselves?
