In: BOF'07, 28 jun 2007, Michigan State University, MI, Usa.
This paper explores how to discover unexpected information in existing
folksonomies (serendipity) using extensive multilingual open source repositories as the underlying knowledge base, overcoming linguistic barriers at the same time. A web application called Flickrpedia is given as a practical example, using Flickr as the folksonomy and diverse natural language Wikipedias as the knowledge base.
