Semantic Web by Example: Semantic CrunchBase - benjamin nowack&# CrunchBase is now available as Linked Data including a SPARQL endpoint and a custom API builder based on SPARQLScript. 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. Tea with Mr Miliband "There might be a knock at the door from the police," the voice on the phone warned me. Crikey, I hadn't expected that one. But then when you allow your front room to be the venue for a campaign visit from David Miliband with BBC cameras, furry broom mics and Laura Kuenssberg in tow, you can't expect normality. The possible police involvement (which never materialised) was raised because, as a former foreign secretary, the elder Miliband has continuing special branch protection, who sometimes like to scope out his surroundings. In the event there was nothing much to fear from the normal terraced street he came to and regular party members he met. The campaign websites of both David Miliband and Labour mayoral contender Oona King each have a section where you can click to host a house-meeting.

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. 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.

How the EU works The EU is a unique economic and political partnership between 28 European countries that together cover much of the continent. The EU was created in the aftermath of the Second World War. The first steps were to foster economic cooperation: the idea being that countries who trade with one another become economically interdependent and so more likely to avoid conflict. The result was the European Economic Community (EEC), created in 1958, and initially increasing economic cooperation between six countries: Belgium, Germany, France, Italy, Luxembourg and the Netherlands. Since then, a huge single market has been created and continues to develop towards its full potential.

Le 10 Downing Street ou le Number Ten Le 10 Downing Street est la résidence et le bureau du Premier ministre du Royaume-Uni de Grande-Bretagne et d'Irlande du Nord, situé sur Downing Street dans la Cité de Westminster, près des chambres du parlement, au cœur de Londres. La résidence est officiellement celle du Premier Lord au Trésor, mais ce poste est tenu conjointement à celui de Premier ministre depuis 1905.
