Yacca is a social game. It is a virtual fan block for the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™. Everything in Yacca revolves around the Yacca cards for the players of the championship. Whenever the Yacca card of a player is displayed in the web, the players Yacca points are increased. To promote their favourite players and teams the users can easily embed the Yacca cards into their blog or website. The player cards are widgets which are delivered from Maiana out of the Yacca topic map.

As a former information scientist, I am fascinated since 1999 by the capabilities for building Topic Maps-based knowledge systems having the potential to augment human mind. One can model arbitrary knowledge organization systems, deal with semantic heterogeneity, collocate all facts about one subject in one logical place, and with TMQL have semantic retrieval on federated semantic networks. Therefore I expect bright prospects for business concepts building on the exchange of such knowledge snippets via semantic knowledge services.
