Cultural heritage and the semantic web « Libraries, the universe and everything

This was a fascinating and challenging day, with some excellent speakers and lots of opportunity for open discussions. I must admit I spent most of the day trying not to do a goldfish impression – there was so much to think about, and although I’ve heard expressions like ‘semantic web’ and ‘linked data’ I must admit I had a pretty vague idea of what it all actually meant. Perhaps my favourite moment of the day was when one of the afternoon speakers, Atanas Kiryakov, summarised the whole linked data thing as being akin to teenage sex: everyone talks about it, not that many people are actually doing it, and most of those who are were disappointed with the experience and hope it will be better next time!

What It Means to Be An Online Community Builder. For the past 15 years, cocktail parties were tough. When people would ask what I do for work, my response "I build online communities for business" would serve as a natural repellant to further conversation. Confused or suspicious about this mysterious response, the martini-holding listener would likely divert the conversation elsewhere in short order, as they had absolutely no idea what an online community-builder is or does. I am happy to report that my social life is getting better these days, as online communities are all the rage. There are still elements of mystery that shrouds the community-building profession - but there is also a new-found curiosity.
