The Knowledge Annotation Initiative of the Knowledge Acquisition Community (KA2) is an initiative to develop an ontology that models the knowledge acquisition community (its researchers, topics, products, etc.). This ontology will form the basis to annotate WWW documents of the KA community in order to enable intelligent access to these documents. KA2 is an open joint-initiative where the participants are actively involved in (i) a distributive ontological engineering process to model the knowledge acquisition community (a domain ontology), and (ii) annotating web pages relevant for the KA community (the instances of the domain ontology). KA2 aims at intelligent knowledge retrieval from the Web and automatic derivation of ``new knowledge. In other words, it aims at knowledge-based reasoning on the Web, as opposed to information retrieval. Another objective of the initiative is to get better insight in distributive ontological engineering processes.
