I just finished to setup a web server to host the new Music Ontology’s domain name musicontology.com. The specification document is now available at that new URL. This step has been done to start branding the ontology to help for its adoption.

New development Wiki

I also installed Mediawiki to help the development of the ontology. This new Wiki is available at wiki.musicontology.com.

I think this is an essential element in the ontology’s development infrastructure. This Wiki will be used to make the link between the specification document and the mailing list.

The main incentive to create this Wiki is to put some sections of the specification document into the Wiki. That way, people will be able to easily enhance these sections with new examples, etc.; and it will make the specification document much smaller and simpler.

Wiki main sections

If you take a look at the left side bar, you will notice links to main Wiki sections. I would suggest you to take a look at these sections to see what they are used for. I started to put information in these pages and I will continue in the next days; but I would appreciate if you could put some lines if you have some ideas, examples, use cases, etc in mind.

How members should use this Wiki

First of all, I expect that all mailing list members create a new user in this Wiki. So, people interested in the Music Ontology Development should follow these steps:

  1. They should register a new user
  2. They should put putt their name in the “Community Member list”
  3. They should put some information about them in their user page
  4. They should contribute to this Wiki by adding content, examples, use cases, tools, etc.

Music Ontology Logo

Just for your information, a logo for the Music Ontology should be available soon too.


I think that the Wiki was a requested feature since the beginning of the development of the Music Ontology. If people start to write some things in it, it will not only become the best way to develop the ontology and track its evolution; it will also become the best way to publicize it and to help for its adoption by the Web community.
