Here are some of the words proportional to their frequency in the corpus.
In a previous article we discussed how the Semantic Web is about making content easier for machines to interpret . This is accomplished in a number of ways including tagging content as structured data and defining content as linked data within the Linked Open Data cloud (LOD). RDF provides us with a framework to do both. RDF stands for Resource Description Framework. This framework is used to represent data in the LOD cloud as an XML file, and is the basis for RDFa, a format used to mark up content as structured data for the Semantic Web. This article provides a basic explanation of RDF and RDFa.
Whether they're for clients, customers or colleagues, visual presentations are an unavoidable part of doing business. For years, Microsoft PowerPoint has been the standard bearer of slide presentation applications, but several Web-based alternatives have emerged. For the most part, the alternatives offer similar functionality to PowerPoint, sometimes more, sometimes less. One obvious advantage to Web-based presentations is that they're stored in the cloud, eliminating the potential for nightmare scenarios involving lost or corrupted thumb drives. Prezi
We've shown you how to automate just about anything on your Mac without coding , but if you're a Windows user, you can automate repetitive tasks in the same way with free app Actions. Actions is a Java app that aims to bring the same automation tools to Windows as Mac users get from the Automator tool. The idea is that, through a simple drag-and-drop interface, you can create a workflow of actions that can edit files or performs various common tasks. For example, you can batch rotate a bunch of pictures, or rename a large collection of files according to specific rules. Actions works in almost exactly the same way as Automator—so brush up on your anatomy of a workflow and check out the examples below to see how it works.
You’re a kid, and therefore you like to shoot things. But what if the catapult and the air-rifle just aren’t cutting it anymore? Then you, like Jason (aka Larsplatoon) make your own coil-gun. The styling is straight out of a video-game, but inside the engineering is very real, and very lethal.

Ellen Rubin is the founder and Vice President of Products for CloudSwitch , which allows enterprises to run applications in the cloud without re-architecting the application or changing existing management tools. ELLEN RUBIN CloudSwitch At first glance, cloud computing can appear to be “virtualization taken to its logical conclusion.” After all, if the main benefit of virtualization is to consolidate data center resources and increase the speed of provisioning, then cloud is the ultimate pay-off: don’t own the resources at all and cut provisioning down to a few minutes with instant self-service gratification. But upon further thought, cloud seems to be giving virtualization a return to the spotlight. A recent Gartner study noted that cloud computing is the number two priority for CIOs – trumped only by virtualization.
