DBin is a Semantic Web application that enables groups of users with a common interest to cooperatively create semantically structured knowledge bases. These user groups, which we call "Semantic Web Communities", are made possible by creating customized user environments called "Brainlets". Brainlets provide user interfaces and domain specific tools (e.g. querying, viewing and editing facilities) which enable community participants to interact with the data of interest.
