Plasma Team Looks at the Future

,----[ Quote ]
| Over the last weekend, the Plasma team held their second meeting in Porto, 
| Portugal. The meeting was organised by Akademy Award winner Nuno Pinheiro 
| inviting the Akademy Award-winning Plasma team to his home country. The 
| meeting was kindly hosted by the Departamento de Engenharia Informatica 
| (Department of Software Engineering) of the Instituto Superior de Engenharia 
| do Porto. The Plasma team (and most probably many of the KDE users) are 
| grateful for being provided this opportunity to collaborate on the desktop.      



Plasmoid prognostication

| Plasmoids and maybe Plasma (or derivatives) itself on everything from 3'
| phone screens to 30' LCD panels, with every size of netbook and laptop
| inbetween.  This, gentle readers, is why you stay forward thinking on
| technology (Plasma framework decisions) and keep your usability experts
| happy.  This can and will be massive.


Crystal desktop search applet.

| Over new year, I've been playing around with Strigi and Nepomuk, which are
| the two technologies around desktop search and "making sense of your data".
| Strigi is the underlying library that is used to analyze all sorts of files
| and index those results. Nepomuk provides a semantic layer on top of this
| information, and a nice KDE API for easy integration in applications. While
| Nepomuk is only lately maturing, it shows some nice ways to interact with
| information on your desktop. Nepomuk uses RDF and ontologies to make sense of
| your data. It has the concept of types of data (think of a photo being an an
| image), and how those types relate to each other. It also stores metadata
| (for the photo example, that'd be size, camera model, and so on.
