- Linking Data and Semantics at O’Reilly is a very interesting article that shows how some developers at O'Reilly Media, the famous computer book publisher, moved from ad hoc XML formats published with complex scripts to RESTful publication, and then found themselves unable but to start using the benefits brought by linked data and the semantic web, thereby simplifying a lot of their data issues. Great progress.
- Price Waterhouse Coopers just published a bullish 58 page Technology forecast for the Semantic Web containing a lot of very good articles. download for free here
On a the Social Web front:
- I added 5 simple use cases for the Social Web, which foaf+ssl can take care of on the Social Web XG wiki.
- Bruno Harbulot tagged release 0.3.1 for the FOAF+SSL java libraries and release maven jars for them, as explained in his e-mail to the list
There is a new project called Interactive Knowledge Stack (IKS), which is a Semantics Based Open Source platform for Small to Medium CMS Providers.
