Content Writing in the Semantic Web (Course)
Building networks of texts within a web of people

I am finally done with something I started creating 6 months ago: my course Content Writing for the Semantic Web. The course is now live on Udemy. In a sentence, it is about approaching content writing from the perspective of the more and more interconnected web.

Here is the link to the course: https://www.udemy.com/content-writing-in-the-semantic-web/learn/v4/overview

On this page that I am sharing you will find a bit more about each of the sections in the course. 

These lectures, the thinking and the writing involved in them, would have never been reality if it weren’t for all the knowledgeable and inspiring people I met on G+.

Thank you

I will skip pinging people by name and instead will send a signal of gratitude that I am sure will be received by everyone who knows and feels they have been nudging and supporting me all the way along this journey.

A journey that is yet another thread on a web, woven with "elaborate care" :)

Web Scriptorium: Something I will be building in the upcoming month

In Bulgarian. :) It is harder than I though. I will need to find my voice here. And start talking about the magic of text.
I have mixed feeling about it, but I also have this impossible to ignore urge to create such a place - a place, a course, where me and some of my colleagues will be skipping the keywords and ROI part and will be focusing more on the mechanics of textuality on the Web.

The Joy of Books and Italy

Antonio La Cava, a retired school teacher, transformed his three-wheeler into a tiny mobile library to spread the joy of books to children in the remote communities of Basilicata.

p.s. And this wonderful person talks in Italian!!! :))

We recently announced the acceleration of the G+ sunset for consumers. The sunset is now scheduled to take place in April 2019, and over the coming months we will provide users with information to help them migrate off of G+.

Users interested in preserving their G+ data should follow the instructions on our Google+ Help Page.

A Good Discussion on Solid - the Linked Data platform I have been exploring

+fil smyth has put some interesting questions that will unfold into a good discussion (and actionable directions) about our data, our social web precense and our .. holograms :)
[ a Solid question ]

Sure, I could open my own topic over on forum.solidproject.org (on Discourse, which works pretty well), or message +Gideon Rosenblatt and/or +Teodora Petkova directly, but:

🔵 A; that forum is full of coders and developers, and as a non-coding non-developer I feel out of place,

and
🔵 2; g+ is still a perfectly viable platform, for the time being, and not only do I want to keep things going here, the question(s) and answer(s) are perhaps more relevant to g+ users than Solid Project forum members.

The question...

So there's this near-future science fiction type of scene we've all seen, where a character is usually standing, getting ready for the day and there's an information feed. Maybe I'm only fabricating a partial memory but I seem to recall at least one such scene featuring a list of individuals with numbers of new posts (along with news). They were probably floating in the air, in some sort of bullshit holographic display.

Now, this is the sort of thing I imagine that a medium-of-all-media could provide (without the holography): A user collects contacts, areas of interest and people of interest, and is able to tailor the way they are presented. The user is also able to use this interface to post content, either publicly or to one or more specific platform(s), view and reply to messages, search, play music or video, book a ride or destination, buy and sell things --- all without the bother of switching between apps.

That's too much to expect very soon, I know. However it shouldn't be too much to ask, for one app to deliver posts from various social media and allow the user to post on the associated new medium and/or share to other social media at will. Being able to see how many new posts there are from a specific individual, regardless of platform, might just be a personal wish but I suspect would become a valued feature.


What I want to know is, is anyone even working on anything like that, with Solid? Is there any sort of concerted effort to deliver a user-friendly app that will work better than g+ ever did, while allowing views and selective posting across existing social media? And if so, will it offer its own platform?


Looking at the forum, one can definitely tell that work is being done. It is however very difficult to tell what the finished product is supposed to look like.

Or indeed, how soon anything at all will launch.

Any insights?
