The Semantic Web is a web of data. There is lots of data we all use every day, and it is not part of the web. I can see my bank statements on the web, and my photographs, and I can see my appointments in a calendar. But can I see my photos in a calendar to see what I was doing when I took them? Can I see bank statement lines in a calendar? Why not? The Semantic Web is about two things.

Twinkle: A SPARQL Query Tool Twinkle is a simple GUI interface that wraps the ARQ SPARQL query engine. The tool should be useful both for people wanting to learn the SPARQL query language, as well as those doing Semantic Web development. Twinkle was originally inspired by Elliotte Harold's XQuisitor which provides a simple GUI interface for playing with XQuery.

W3C Data Activity - Building the Web of Data Data is increasingly important to society and W3C has a mature suite of Web standards with plans for further work on making it easier for average developers to work with graph data and knowledge graphs. Linked Data is about the use of URIs as names for things, the ability to dereference these URIs to get further information and to include links to other data. There are ever increasing sources of Linked Open Data on the Web, as well as data services that are restricted to the suppliers and consumers of those services. The digital transformation of industry is seeking to exploit advanced digital technologies. This will facilitate businesses to integrate horizontally along the supply and value chains, and vertically from the factory floor to the office floor. W3C is seeking to make it easier to support enterprise wide data management and governance, reflecting the strategic importance of data to modern businesses.

XFN - XHTML Friends Network XFN™ (XHTML Friends Network) is a simple way to represent human relationships using hyperlinks. In recent years, blogs and W3C Data Activity As many people who work in the field will know, the 2007 INSPIRE Directive tasks European Union Member States with harmonizing their spatial and environmental data. The relevant department of the European Commission, the JRC, has lead the definition of a complex data model that is broken down into various themes. Naturally enough, the data is modeled in UML and the implementations are based largely on OGC standards that make use of XML/GML etc. However, a number of projects are experimenting with using the model in Linked Data environments. These include GeoKnow, MELODIES and SmartOpenData (SmOD) in which W3C’s European host, ERCIM, is a partner.

Alex Faaborg - » Microformats - Part 0: Introduction Have you been over hearing people talk about microformats and thought to yourself “what are those?” In this post I provide a quick introduction, and discuss the various ways that microformats are changing the Web. What are microformats? Microformats can be explained in a number of ways, but the easiest way to explain them is to just show an example.

Labs/Ubiquity Back to Labs. Ubiquity was a Mozilla Labs experiment that was in development from 2008 to 2009. Its purpose was to explore whether a radically different type of interface to the Web — a task-centric, natural-language-based command line — could help us get common Web tasks done faster. Development is currently on indefinite hiatus. We will most likely revisit the experiment at some point in the future.
