Linked Data Research Centre

We are currently working on a Technical Report about Linked Data Applications - The Genesis and the Challenges of Using Linked Data on the Web: Abstract: We are writing the year 2009. Three years after the linked data principles have been formulated by Tim Berners-Lee and two years after the grass-root community project 'Linking Open Data' has started to apply them to publicly available datasets such as Wikipedia, DBLP, and GeoNames, we are still at the very inception to understand how to use linked data in order to build Web applications and Web services. This memo outlines the current state-of-the-art, highlights (research) issues and tries to anticipate some of the future developments of linked data.

Social Web Incubator Group. The mission of the Social Web Incubator Group, part of the Incubator Activity, is to understand the systems and technologies that permit the description and identification of people, groups, organizations, and user-generated content in extensible and privacy-respecting ways.

Social Web Incubator Group

The topics covered with regards to the emerging Social Web include, but are not limited to: accessibility, internationalization, portability, distributed architecture, privacy, trust, business metrics and practices, user experience, and contextual data. The scope includes issues such as widget platforms (such as OpenSocial, Facebook and W3C Widgets), as well as other user-facing technology, such as OpenID and OAuth, and mobile access to social networking services.

The group is concerned also with the extensibility of Social Web descriptive schemas, so that the ability of Web users to describe themselves and their interests is not limited by the imagination of software engineers or Web site creators.

Update: Wow, these guys are quick, there is now a full RSS feed for CrunchBoard jobs. I've tweaked the related examples. This post is a bit late (I've even been TechCrunch'd already), but I wanted to add some features before I fully announce "Semantic CrunchBase", a Linked Data version of CrunchBase, the free directory of technology companies, people, and investors. CrunchBase recently activated an awesome API, with the invitation to build apps on top of it. This seemed like the ideal opportunity to test ARC and Trice, but also to demonstrate some of the things that become possible (or much easier) with SemWeb technology. Turning CrunchBase into a Linked Dataset The CB API is based on nicely structured JSON documents which can be retrieved through simple HTTP calls. SPARQL - SQL for the Web Or what about a comparison between acquisitions in California and New York:
