Semantic Web Birds of a Feather at JavaOne 2007
By bblfish on May 11, 2007
Nova Spivack, Lew Tucker, and Tim Boudreau joined me today in a panel discussion on the Semantic Web at Java One. Given that it was at 8pm and that we were competing with a huge party downstairs with free drinks, with robots fighting each other, with live bands, and numerous other private pub parties, the turnout of over 250 participants was quite extraordinary . There was a huge amount of material to cover, and we managed to save 13 minutes at the end for questions. The line of questioners was very long and I think most were answered to the satisfaction of the questioners. It was really great having Nova and Lew over. They brought a lot of experience to the discussion, which I hope gave everyone a feel for the richness of what is going on in this area.
Since many people asked for the presentation it is available here.
 It was quite difficult to tell from the stage how many people were in the room, but a good one third of the 1200 room was full . 580 people had registered for the talk.
