I wrote a tutorial to help people get started with the combination of Sesame, Maven, and Eclipse. Together this forms a great combination for Semantic Web application development in Java.

"If major corporations like Wal-Mart, Kraft, Coca-Cola, Pepsi, McDonalds, and Amazon have had the courage to drop ALEC due to the organization’s ultra-conservative and controversial agenda, why have Google, Facebook and Yelp decided to turn a blind eye?"

ALEC is too toxic for Wal-Mart but good enough for Google!!!? Shameful.
Remember: ALEC = "Stand your ground" gun laws for every state in the U.S.

To their credit, "since at least 2010 Google has chosen to voluntarily release some limited details about grants it makes to US nonprofits." However, "Heritage Action, the tea-party styled political advocacy arm of the Heritage Foundation, is perhaps the most surprising recipient of Google’s largesse. More than any other group working to repeal the Affordable Care Act, Heritage Action pushed for a sustained government shutdown in the fall of 2013, taking the country to the brink of a potentially catastrophic debt default."

"Google is now holding more than $33 billion dollars offshore, avoiding taxes on these earnings in the United States"

and much more.

'Stand your ground' laws have been spread through the U.S. by ALEC, which now has Facebook and Google as paying members.

Leaving lovely Edinburgh now after a week of SWAT4LS tutorials, workshop, hackathon and a EURECA project meeting. It is encouraging to see the steady progress in practical application building and the growth in expertise in the community each year at SWAT4LS! I always come away impressed by the work presented at all events, including the hackathon (something that I occasionally refer to as the "model-a-thon" to include folks are not necessarily writing code but still contributing). Hats off to all involved! The health care and life sciences Semantic Web community is growing stronger. Thanks to everyone who could make it this year! Hope to see you next year in Rome.

Civilization is one large experiment in sustainability at scale. The way we think about education is an important part of the experiment. Sir Ken Robinson points out some of the fallacies of current thinking in an interesting and witty lecture with running illustrations. As with many things, it depends on how you measure: progress, economic health, knowledge and academic ability of students, ADHD, intelligence, ...
Thanks to +Henri de Haan for the FB share.

ALEC is a tax-exempt organisation financed by American Petroleum Institute, Exxon, Koch Industries and Altria (Tobacco). It meddles in U.S. democracy through lobbying and is responsible for spreading right-wing legislation from state to state through 'models' such as the now infamous 'Stand your ground' aka shooting-people-when-you-feel-threatened-is-OK laws, promoting climate change denial, and many other forms anti-labor, anti-environment, anti-poor, and anti-minority regressive legislation. Google, Facebook, and Yelp should be ashamed for joining this short-sighted club of profiteers.
