In continuity to Jack Park's inspiring keynote at TMRA 2005, we invited Steve Newcomb and Steve Pepper as keynote speakers for TMRA 2006. Steve Newcomb will talk in his opening keynote about "Flat Mapping for a Flat World" and Steve Pepper will disclose in his closing keynote the forthcoming challenge of the Topic Maps community: "Crossing the Chasm".
Flat Mapping for a Flat World
Abstract: As a matter of survival, people need to be aware of the
implications of perspectives that they do not themselves
have. Globalization requires ordinary people, everywhere,
to adapt to multiple perspectives simultaneously, even when
they conflict with one another. We are not just running
faster in order to stay in one place, we are running to stay
where we are in more and more places, all at the same time.
Globalization demands topic mapping for many reasons, but
perhaps most compellingly because no other approach can show
us where we are in multiple independent universes
(get the slides)
Crossing the Chasm (cancelled)
Abstract: In order to become mainstream, any new technology has to cross the chasm
that separates the visionaries (the "early adopters") from the pragmatists
(the "early majority"). As the revised version of the Topic Maps standard is
about to hit the streets, this presentation looks at where we are today and
what needs to be done to make Topic Maps a mass phenomenon.
