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" :)

RDF, the Semantic Web and the Practice of Relationships


I love that explanation by +Kingsley Idehen whom I relentlessly ask about all things Semantic Web and its "implementation". Today, I got this beautiful answer that I believe enriches our understanding of how we can build the Web of People.

[The following is from a discussion we entered into thanks to a knowledge quest I recently share with +Cruce Saunders https://www.linkedin.com/feed/update/urn:li:activity:6434411126917775360]

Enjoy!


#RDF and the notion of a #SemanticWeb are victims of mass confusion.

hashtag#RDF is just an abstract language for hashtag#DataDefinition i.e., representing entity relationship types using subject->predicate->object structured sentences. It is both notation and content serialization format agnostic. Unfortunately, mistakes made circa., 1998 re. its inadvertent co-mingling with hashtag#XML persist till this very day.

The notion of a hashtag#SemanticWeb is simply about an entity relationship graph (network) constructed from hyperlinks (specifically, #HTTP URIs), but that too is somewhat blurred by confusion about the nature of an HTTP URI regarding what it actually identifies.

IT departments are full of practitioners well versed in entity relationships that model the real-world. Confusion arises as a consequence of the items above and the dominance of "programmer voice" over the voices of "subject matter experts" and "enterprise architects" .

Ultimately, the hashtag#SemanticWeb will simply emulate the hashtag#Web i.e., it just becomes recognized for what it is by stealth.

Remember, hashtag#Web wasn't generally understood en route to explosion.

Interview with the "pope" of the Semantic Web

In his original design of the World Wide Web, ACM A.M. Turing Award winner Sir Tim Berners-Lee pointed out that his vision of the Web from the very beginning focused on the relationships between entities, not just the display thereof.

Social Linked Data
Solid

I am excited about Solid! Are you. Have your tried creating an account and maybe building something?
Call to adventure: Solid

The Web of Data is all grassroots and we, its people, are to weave it.

Have you tried Solid? I had! And I am both excited and scared.

I am scared because it felt like the early days of creating something on the Web, where there weren't so many layers and connections, making the flow of moulding with digital objects smooth. In this terra incognita all is still rough. Rough, but true.

It is a webby road. A semantic webby road, I personally am willing to travel, knowing that there is still so much to learn and do for a the Web to become that independent “cyberspace, the new home of the mind”

Read more about my Solid call to adventure :) and I will meet you there!
