New site, Referata, offers hosting of SMW and related extensions


July 3 2008. A new site, Referata, located at, offers hosting of wikis with built-in support for Semantic MediaWiki and its spinoff extensions Semantic Forms, Semantic Drilldown, Semantic Calendar, Semantic Google Maps and Data Transfer, along with other helpful extensions. It is the first site dedicated to hosting Semantic MediaWiki-based wikis, and possibly the first site dedicated to hosting semantic wikis of any kind. The site was created and is run by Yaron Koren, one of the most active contributors to SMW and maintainer of many of the above extensions. Basic usage of the site is free, with additional paid service levels for features such as making one's wiki readable only to members.
