Twine is well and alive

September 16, 2008

I have been using Twine for a while now and I dig the fact that it allows me to so easily organize the contents that I am interested in from the Web. Twine users claim that it is an Interest Network on top of a Social Network. It helps in resolving the Information Overload problem, but with capabilities more than online bookmarking sites like Delicious. It actually extracts the content from webpages, auto-generates tags into different categories using NLP (Natural Language Processing) techniques and gives you a capability to connect to other Twiners like you do in Facebook.  I like the concept and have been using it thoroughly.

The entire site is built on top of the Semantic Web infrastructure and they are one of the pioneers in this realm of emerging web technologies -find me at http://www.twine.com/user/shamod.
