Ubiquitous User Modeling looks at personalization within smart environments, tries to resolve problems of diversity of user modeling techniques and representations by mediation of user models, and bases on semantic standardization of user modeling enabling user modeling data exchange and sharing by using a common user modeling ontology and language. This paper describes the initial work done in the UbisWorld 3.0 project, a tool set of semantic web and Web 2.0-like services with the distributed management of scrutable user models, as well as the foundations for a distributed user model ontology development. This demonstration description previews only selected aspects of the new data types, implementation issues and the user interfaces. The complete system can be tested online as registered user at
