Linked Data - Connect Distributed Data across the Web

Linked Data - Connect Distributed Data across the Web
Linked Data is about using the Web to connect related data that wasn't previously linked, or using the Web to lower the barriers to linking data currently linked using other methods. More specifically, Wikipedia defines Linked Data as "a term used to describe a recommended best practice for exposing, sharing, and connecting pieces of data, information, and knowledge on the Semantic Web using URIs and RDF." This site exists to provide a home for, or pointers to, resources from across the Linked Data community.

Creating, Deploying and Exploiting Linked Data Yes, because it facilitates: Broadening our perspectives (pivoting on data behind documents) Serendipitous Discovery of relevant things via the Web Exploitation of collective intelligence via Discourse, Discovery and Participation Why Is Facebook Blue? The Science Behind Colors In Marketing Editor's Note: This is one of the most-read leadership articles of 2013. Click here to see the full list. Why is Facebook blue? According to The New Yorker, the reason is simple. It’s because Mark Zuckerberg is red-green color blind; blue is the color Mark can see the best. Not highly scientific, right? Manual of Style The Manual of Style (often abbreviated MoS or MOS) is a style guide for all Wikipedia articles. This is its main page, covering certain topics (such as punctuation) in full, and presenting the key points of others. Subpages, linked via this page's menu and listed at Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Contents, provide detailed guidance on some topics.

Semantic Web W3C's Semantic Web logo The Semantic Web is a collaborative movement led by international standards body the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).[1] The standard promotes common data formats on the World Wide Web. By encouraging the inclusion of semantic content in web pages, the Semantic Web aims at converting the current web, dominated by unstructured and semi-structured documents into a "web of data". The Semantic Web stack builds on the W3C's Resource Description Framework (RDF).[2]

Heritrix - Heritrix - IA Webteam Confluence This is the public wiki for the Heritrix archival crawler project. Heritrix is the Internet Archive's open-source, extensible, web-scale, archival-quality web crawler project. Heritrix (sometimes spelled heretrix, or misspelled or mis-said as heratrix/heritix/ heretix/heratix) is an archaic word for heiress (woman who inherits). Since our crawler seeks to collect and preserve the digital artifacts of our culture for the benefit of future researchers and generations, this name seemed apt. All topical contributions to this wiki (corrections, proposals for new features, new FAQ items, etc.) are welcome!

SSH, The Secure Shell: The Definitive Guide by Daniel J. Barrett and Richard E. SilvermanISBN: 0-596-00011-1First edition, published February 2001.(See the catalog page for this book.) 15 Stunning Examples of Data Visualization Data Visualization is a method of presenting information in a graphical form. Good data visualization should appear as if it is a work of art. This intrigues the viewer and draws them in so that they can further investigate the data and info that the graphic represents. In this post there are 15 stunning examples of Data Visualization that are true works of art. Manual of Style (linking) Linking through hyperlinks is an important feature of Wikipedia. Internal links are used to bind the project together into an interconnected whole. Interwiki links bind the project to sister projects such as Wikisource, Wiktionary, and Wikipedia in other languages; and external links bind Wikipedia to the World Wide Web. Appropriate links provide instant pathways to locations within and outside the project that are likely to increase readers' understanding of the topic at hand. When writing or editing an article, it is important to consider not only what to put in the article, but what links to include to help the reader find related information, as well as which other pages should carry links to the article.

Top-Down: A New Approach to the Semantic Web Earlier this week we wrote about the classic approach to the semantic web and the difficulties with that approach. While the original vision of the layer on top of the current web, which annotates information in a way that is "understandable" by computers, is compelling; there are technical, scientific and business issues that have been difficult to address. One of the technical difficulties that we outlined was the bottom-up nature of the classic semantic web approach. Specifically, each web site needs to annotate information in RDF, OWL, etc. in order for computers to be able to "understand" it. As things stand today, there is little reason for web site owners to do that. The tools that would leverage the annotated information do not exist and there has not been any clearly articulated business and consumer value.

RDF-Gravity Sunil Goyal, Rupert Westenthaler {sgoyal, rwestenthaler} Salzburg Research, Austria RDF Gravity is a tool for visualising RDF/OWL Graphs/ ontologies. Its main features are: Compiling a C# Project using Command Line Tools (Tutorial) Compiling a C# (C-Sharp) file using command line tools is not as difficult as you may think. In this tutorial, I will walk you through the steps needed to create a project using nothing more than Notepad and the Command Prompt. Jump to the code A lot of programmers are not aware that the .NET compilers used by Visual Studio are installed as part of the .NET Framework itself.

Color Me A Dinosaur – The History Of Crayola Crayons, Charted First, Pluto got a demotion. Then, surfing the FM dial, I heard a Styx song on the oldies station. And just yesterday, park-side, a nanny chided me: “Star fish? No, kids call those sea stars nowadays.” Oh, really?
