Microdata: HTML5’s Best-Kept Secret

Similar to outside efforts like Microformats, HTML5′s microdata offers a way of extend HTML by adding custom vocabularies to your pages. HTML5 Microdata: Why isn’t anyone talking about it? Written by Brian Cray on September 8th, 2010 Many big web design blogs are raving about HTML5, as they should be. But if you read many of them, [1, 2, 3], you'll be bombarded with an over-publicizing of header, article, footer, et. al tags, which reminds me of circa 2002 when we were all jumping onto the XHTML bandwagon. But 8 years later where'd XHTML get us? FISE - Enhancement Engines. Annotation-ontology - Project Hosting on Google Code. Ciccarese P, Ocana M, Castro LJG, Das S, Clark, T.

An Open Annotation Ontology for Science on Web 3.0. J Biomed Semantics 2011, 2(Suppl 2):S4 (17 May 2011) Please read this carefully: Specification is undergoing changes. The Annotation Ontology specification is currently used as input for the activities of the W3C Open Annotation Community Group that works towards a common, RDF-based, specification for annotating digital resources. Media Fragments URI 1.0. Representing Content in RDF 1.0. [contents] Abstract This document is a specification for a vocabulary to represent content in the Resource Description Framework (RDF).

Representing Content in RDF 1.0

This vocabulary is intended to provide a flexible framework within different usage scenarios to semantically represent any type of content, be it on the Web or in local storage media. For example, it can be used by web quality assurance tools such as web accessibility evaluation tools to record a representation of the assessed web content, including text, images, or other types of formats. In many cases, it can be used together with HTTP Vocabulary in RDF 1.0, which allows quality assurance tools to record the HTTP headers that have been exchanged between a client and a server.

His name is “The Modeller” and his scheme is to model Gotham city entirely accurately in a way that is of no practical value to anybody. He has an OWL which sits on his shoulder which has the power to absorb huge amounts of time and energy. Welcome to Linked Open Data Around the Clock. Semantic Copyright.

Introducing fise, the Open Source RESTful Semantic Engine, Nuxeo Developers Blog

As a member of the IKS european project Nuxeo contributes to the development of an Open Source software project named fise whose goal is to help bring new and trendy semantic features to CMS by giving developers a stack of reusable HTTP semantic services to build upon. As such concepts might be new to some readers, the first part of this blog post is presented as a Q&A. What is a Semantic Engine? A semantic engine is a software component that extracts the meaning of a electronic document to organize it as partially structured knowledge and not just as a piece of unstructured text content.

Current semantic engines can typically: categorize documents (is this document written in English, Spanish, Chinese? The web, the world, us, you and them. Very raw, sometimes verbatim but doubtless flawed notes from Harry Wood‘s excellent talk at Open Data Institute in London.

Code 4 Lib 2010 The Linked Library Data Cloud: Stop Talking and Start Doing. The Registry! The Fate of the Semantic Web. Overview Sir Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of the World Wide Web, has worked along with many others in the internet community for more than a decade to achieve his next big dream: the semantic web.

The Fate of the Semantic Web

His vision is a web that allows software agents to carry out sophisticated tasks for users, making meaningful connections between bits of information so that “computers can perform more of the tedious work involved in finding, combining, and acting upon information on the web.” Some 895 experts responded to the invitation of the Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project and Elon University’s Imagining the Internet Center to predict the likely progress toward achieving the goals of the semantic web by the year 2020.

Extending HTML5 — Microformats. While HTML5 has a bunch of semantic elements, including new ones like <article> and <nav>, sometimes there just isn’t an element with the right meaning.

Extending HTML5 — Microformats

What we want are ways to extend what we’ve got, to add extra semantics that are machine-readable — data that a browser, script, or robot can use. Native ways to extend HTML There were five fundamental ways we could extend HTML 4: Tingle's Technology Notes (linked data. I Have Yet to Metadata I Didn’t Like.
