From the Abstract:

The construction of semantically structured, accurate, and comprehensive knowledge bases remains an important but difficult problem. Acquiring the wealth of human knowledge in a machine-readable format would have invaluable benefits for semantic web services and AI applications in general. In this report I outline a new approach that aims to address this challenge by harnessing the power of social networking.
