"While the specification is a work in progress, JSON-LD largely succeeds. It makes it possible to introduce Linked Data principles and vocabularies into existing JSON data without changing the data structure or application code. By the same stroke, the simple, readable structure of its JSON makes it easy to use..."

Probably one of the best Pembertons you'll find in Amsterdam, if not all of the Netherlands. Serves great coffee, and if you get the chance, try Venison.

I'm finally admitting defeat with Google Drive. I paid for a subscription to try and back up photos and code via the Mac OS desktop app, but it has to be the worst piece of software ever written by an intern. Constantly loses connection, crashes, pushes the CPU to 100%...it really is rubbish.

After not having blogged for a while I thought I'd take a look at what blogging platforms were available before I started up again. My latest post is a summary of what I found, from Blogger to Tumblr to Jekyll: http://bit.ly/xLba2O

It looks like the Government's commitment to open data is going up a notch. If even half of what is outlined in this document comes to fruition it will be incredible, and some pretty entrenched markets could be set for disruption.
