Another music / RDF link is LV2, a Linux plugin format, which uses RDF to describe its connections and controls.

What fun! At first blush, I agree it scores more points on the amusing/fun scale than the usefulness scale. I won't be holding my breath, but hey, maybe some creative soul may just surprise us and do something truly useful.

New blog entry: Playing with a proximity beacon." Please leave any comments here.
http://www.snee.com/bobdc.blog/2016/04/playing-with-a-proximity-beaco.html
I've been hearing about proximity beacons lately and thought it would be fun to try one of these inexpensive devices that broadcast a URL for a range of just a few meters via Bluetooth Low Energy (a.k.a. BLE, which I assume is pronounced "bleh"). Advocates often cite the use case of how a beacon ...

http://www.snee.com/bobdc.blog/2016/01/the-past-and-present-of-hypert.html
I've been thinking lately about the visionary optimism of the days when people dreamed of the promise of large-scale hypertext systems. I'm pretty sure they didn't mean linkless content down the middle of a screen with columns of ads to the left and right of it, which is much of what we read off ...

New blog entry: Semantic web semantics vs. vector embedding machine learning semantics
http://www.snee.com/bobdc.blog/2016/09/semantic-web-semantics-vs-vect.html Please add any comments here.
When I presented "intro to the semantic web" slides in TopQuadrant product training classes, I described how people talking about "semantics" in the context of semantic web technology mean something specific, but that other claims for computerized semantics (especially, in many cases, ...

New blog entry: Trying out Blazegraph (especially inferencing). Please add any comments here. http://www.snee.com/bobdc.blog/2016/05/trying-out-blazegraph.html
I've been hearing more about the Blazegraph triplestore (well, "graph database with RDF support"), especially its support for running on GPUs, and because they also advertise some degree of RDFS and OWL support, I wanted to see how quickly I could try that after downloading the community edition ...

RDFS and OWL entailment should be part of every serious RDF repository. Let's hope, the situation gets better in the future. Thank you for your simple, but interesting, post.
