I am new to this,

but am curious about this ontology building tool
which could enable us to define ontologies together / engineer systems, compare them, combine them, ... ?

WebProtege is an open source, lightweight, web-based ontology editor. Our main goal in developing WebProtege is to support the process of collaborative ontology development in a web environment.

Hi Trevor,

following your interest in the "reputation matrix" and possible algorithms expressed on the new economics list ( ),

where would you/we like to start with ?


I am personally interested in defining some semantic web "Transaction Contract" vocabulary. 

I also know of some other projects which go in this direction - or can be directly compatible , such as the following protocols defined by Robin Upton

or other metacurrency ontology projects in development such as


In addition, I remember another existing tool for recognition in a context of community building such as

Perhaps you know some other ones I may not be aware of... ?

I particularly love the "reputation matrix" concept. I can envision this as a method to unite all of the reputations that we have as members of LETS, Freecycle, Community Exchange etc.

There's probably a Doctoral thesis in designing a data mining algorithm that can return a "grand unified Collaborative Communities reputation" for any person. If our reputations as collaborators in building communities are "bankable" new economic order, then we need to make sure that such an algorithm not only works, but is protected against fraud!

I've been confusing myself for months now, trying to think of ways to do this. .... hopefully discussions that flow from this  project will be very helpful in resolving this kind of dilemma.

I'm not new to ontologies, and I'm also very curious. As long as they
focus a lot on actual ontologies and not some narrow OO idea of what an
ontology is used for.

Hasan started a bunch of work on define a currency ontology in Protege. 

You can find it in the Protege Ontology Libarary under Monetary Ontology here:

Also... Although it is not a true computing ontology, the decision map for currency design that I created could be very helpful. You can find it here:
