paggr has received very encouraging feedback (or premature praise, rather), so I'm busily working on getting the beta out as soon as possible. Especially given that paggr wouldn't have had a chance to convince the judges without the great amount of Linked Data and all the painful spec work by the Semantic Web Community. The ball's in my court to actually deliver now.
There are some items left on my todo list before I dare sending out more invitation codes (some were added after feedback at ISWC):
- improved RDF exporter for portals and individual widgets (just finished the first version, using a new thingy called poshRDF)
- the widget and agent builders should be visual, more like the cool SPARQLMotion editor (I'm working on that now).
- dropping a widget item on the canvas should auto-open a corresponding details widget
- widgets should be able to "listen to" other widgets for auto-refreshs
- a setup wizard that lets you specify initial accounts and data sources
I assume that a fully generic semantic widget and agent platform might be either over- or underwhelming, so I plan to provide a set of ready-to-run apps for paggr. Here are some ideas:
- feed reader with rich filtering and bookmarking (to del.icio.us?) and rating
- microblog and aggregator (twitter + identi.ca + groups + filters + posting)
- address book
- semantic email client
- decentralized social network (portable personal profile + lifestream aggregation)
