Web 3.0 at JavaOne and Jazoon
By bblfish on Mar 01, 2007
JavaOne will finally present a session on the Semantic Web. This is an opportunity to speak to some of the millions of Java programmers, who in my opinion will find it a lot easier to understand this than xml people have. RDF is a graph of resources and Java a graph of objects. Java developers are confident with UML diagrams and abstractions. The tools are there. It's just a matter of seeing what can be done.
Tim Boudreau helped get me enthusiastic about presenting something at JavaOne, and so we will be presenting together a session currently entitled Web 3.0: this is the Semantic Web. I only have two more weeks to prepare the slides for JavaOne, which won't be enough to get all the demos I would like to do ready. Luckily the Birds of a Feather session, which this will be part of, has a lot more flexible timetable I am told, and some changes may be possible even quite late.
I will be giving the same talk, probably improved by then, at Jazoon a month later.
So there is a lot of work on the table, and I should probably seriously reduce my blogging contributions if I am going to get all this done!
