News 2014-12-03: The 8th edition of the Linked Data on the Web workshop will take place at WWW2015 in Florence, Italy. The paper submission deadline for the workshop is 15 March, 2015. 2014-09-10: An updated version of the LOD Cloud diagram has been published. The new version contains 570 linked datasets which are connected by 2909 linksets. New statistics about the adoption of the Linked Data best practices are found in an updated version of the State of the LOD Cloud document. 2014-04-26: The 7th edition of the Linked Data on the Web workshop took place at WWW2014 in Seoul, Korea. The workshop was attended by around 80 people. Project Description The Open Data Movement aims at making data freely available to everyone. The goal of the W3C SWEO Linking Open Data community project is to extend the Web with a data commons by publishing various open data sets as RDF on the Web and by setting RDF links between data items from different data sources.

About DBpedia is a crowd-sourced community effort to extract structured information from Wikipedia and make this information available on the Web. DBpedia allows you to ask sophisticated queries against Wikipedia, and to link the different data sets on the Web to Wikipedia data. We hope that this work will make it easier for the huge amount of information in Wikipedia to be used in some new interesting ways.

Web Squared: Web 2.0 Five Years On - by Tim O'Reilly and John Battelle Five years ago, we launched a conference based on a simple idea, and that idea grew into a movement. The original Web 2.0 Conference (now the Web 2.0 Summit ) was designed to restore confidence in an industry that had lost its way after the dotcom bust. The Web was far from done, we argued. Give yourself a URI Do you have a URI for yourself? If you are reading this blog and you have the ability to publish stuff on the web, then you can make a FOAF page, and you can give yourself a URI. A lot of people have published data about themselves without using a URI for themselves. This means I can't refer to them in other data.

The Key to Snapchat's Profitability: It's Dirt Cheap to Run Ever since Snapchat turned down a $3 billion all-cash offer from Facebook this past November, there’s been no shortage of discussion about it and the rest of its photo-sharing-and-messaging service cohort, which includes WhatsApp, Kik, Japan-based LINE, China-based WeChat, and Korea-based Kakao Talk. Explanations for this phenomenon have ranged from the need to redefine identity in the social-mobile era to the rise of ephemeral, disposable media. Regardless of why this trend is taking off, it’s clear that the so-called messaging “wars” are heating up.

Tools This page gives an overview of software tools related to the Semantic Web or to semantic technologies in general. Due to the large amount of tools being created in the community, this site is always somewhat outdated. Contributions and updates are welcomed. Linked Data - Design Issues Up to Design Issues The Semantic Web isn't just about putting data on the web. It is about making links, so that a person or machine can explore the web of data. An economic lifecycle model Quite often in digital preservation circles the model is one I call “post-use”. The functional model of OAIS[ii] takes a resource, ingests it safely into the digital preservation box, where it is looked after until someone asks for it, when it is disseminated out to the consumer. It is just about possible to interpret this as part of a normal digital information service, but it’s clear from the text that this is not the OAIS intent, and to do so requires trivialising OAIS to the extent that it ceases to be very meaningful.

Table of Contents: The traditional approach of sharing data within silos seems to have reached its end with Web advancing to an era of opening data. From governments and international organizations to local cities and institutions, there is a widespread effort of opening up and interlinking data. Two important concepts have been coined in this context:

An Atlas of Cyberspaces This is an atlas of maps and graphic representations of the geographies of the new electronic territories of the Internet, the World-Wide Web and other emerging Cyberspaces. These maps of Cyberspaces - cybermaps - help us visualise and comprehend the new digital landscapes beyond our computer screen, in the wires of the global communications networks and vast online information resources. The cybermaps, like maps of the real-world, help us navigate the new information landscapes, as well being objects of aesthetic interest. They have been created by 'cyber-explorers' of many different disciplines, and from all corners of the world. Tools - Visual Data Web More information on the DBpedia endpoint availability. Several tools have already been developed in the project that showcase the visual power of the Data Web. The following four tools are all implemented in the open source framework Adobe Flex. They are readily configured to access RDF data of the DBpedia and/or Linking Open Data (LOD) projects and only require a Flash Player to be executed (which is usually already installed in Web browsers).

Ontology after Quine Bio. I moved to Hamburg having spent three years as a “Juan de la Cierva”researcher at the University of Barcelona, where I was a senior member of the LOGOS Grup de Recerca. Prior to my stint in Barcelona, I was a lecturer in the Faculty of Philosophy and the University of Cambridge, before which I held two postdoctoral research fellowships at the Centre for Metaphysics and Mind, which is attached to the Philosophy Department at the University of Leeds. The first of these was funded by the lovely people at the Analysis Trust. Back in the day I was PhD student at the University of Sheffield, where I was supervised by the one and only John Divers. My thesis assessed fictionalist accounts of possible objects.
