Ontologies

The Beer Topic Map is a fun project.
This is a collaborative project to create a topic map about beer. The idea is to first create an ontology for describing beer, and then allow people to provide their own content using that ontology. The topic maps provided by different people can then be merged together to yield larger data sets.
Sometimes using an example from a subject a user knows is a good way to introduce new ideas. This should be a good introduction to topic maps for some of folks.
