Semantic Mediawiki: A Collaborative Database Framework
SMW is much more than a wiki that happens to have semantic capabilities. It can be used to create Collaborative Database web applications (complete with RDF!) quickly and easily.
Yaron Koren does Semantic MediaWiki development, consulting and hosting through his company WikiWorks. He is the author of Working with MediaWiki (http://workingwithmediawiki.com/).
Ontodia will preview pediacities - a linked open city data platform built using "scruffy"/"little semantics" techniques, due to launch summer 2013 starting with NYC.
Joel Natividad is the CEO and co-founder of Ontodia (http://www.ontodia.com), an urban informatics startup using semantic technologies to help create "smarter cities."
Joel and Yaron are also co-organizing SMWCon Spring 2013 (http://semantic-mediawiki.org/wiki/SMWCon_Spring_2013) at NYU-ITP, Mar 20-22.
