Collecting requirements from large number of online stakeholders is one of success factors of information systems on Internet. However, unstructured and fragmental requirements are difficult to be seamlessly integrated. Distributed stakeholders are difficult to deliver and discuss requirements in an effective and efficient way. This paper proposes a meta-model to structuralize requirements. This paper argues that stakeholders can use ontologies to fill in the meta-model to composite a requirement summary. Based on the proposed meta-model and ontologies, this paper proposes an improved blogs system to assist stakeholders to send, receive, and manage requirements and ontologies. A system architecture is depicted. Finally, a scenario as an illustrative example is also provided to explain how the proposed system architecture works.
