I'll be in Norway for JavaZone for the next week. Updates here will be a little until I get back.

The W3C Multimedia Semantics Incubator Group has published a note on Image Annotation on the Semantic Web. "Many applications that process multimedia assets make use of some form of metadata that describe the multimedia content. The goals of this document are to explain the advantages of using Semantic Web languages and technologies for the creation, storage, manipulation, interchange and processing of image metadata. In addition, it provides guidelines for Semantic Web-based image annotation, illustrated by use cases. Relevant RDF and OWL vocabularies are discussed, along with a short overview of publicly available tools."
