The Epistomat: Generating Consensus About RDF Ontologies and Rules "What happens when you take an ontology-driven interface generator, and feed it the ontology for OWL itself? A simple recursive technique allows for bootstrapping a world model and programmatically generating interfaces to it. Such a model can then serve as the platform for the evolution of collective consensus about ontologies and statements, by means of a curious game of Nomic."

From the Nomic site:
"Nomic is a game in which changing the rules is a move. In that respect it differs from almost every other game. The primary activity of Nomic is proposing changes in the rules, debating the wisdom of changing them in that way, voting on the changes, deciding what can and cannot be done afterwards, and doing it. Even this core of the game, of course, can be changed."
