W3C Dogfooding RDF and LinkedData, Finally!

The W3C has long maintained a Wiki space where it lists Semantic Web Tools: <http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/wiki/Category:Validator> .

Having option to use a Mediawiki instance with the Semantic Mediawiki extensions enabled, you now have the ability to access RDF based descriptions of the listed tools, using the following URL patterns:

[1] http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/wiki/Special:ExportRDF/Category:Validator
[2] http://linkeddata.uriburner.com/about/html/http/www.w3.org/2001/sw/wiki/Special:ExportRDF/Category:Validator .

Sample tools descriptions:

[1] http://linkeddata.uriburner.com/about/html/http/w3.org/2001/sw/wiki/Special:URIResolver/Infovore -- Infovore

[2] http://linkeddata.uriburner.com/about/html/http/w3.org/2001/sw/wiki/Special:URIResolver/RDF_Distiller -- RDF Distiller

[3] http://linkeddata.uriburner.com/c/9CG7HFVC -- list of tools presented using an HTML page that enables faceted exploration over various entity relations

[4] http://bit.ly/1on6rrL -- SPARQL query results page that also enables alternative navigation of the same data .

Nice seeing the W3C upping the ante re. RDF and Linked Data dog-fooding  !!

Your event keeps blocking my google Calendar as busy. Please remove me so it frees up my schedule and do not invite me again. Thanks.

Dear semantic wiki users and developers,

Save the dates! SMWCon Spring 2014 will be held at Concordia University this year in the vibrant and culturally-fascinating city of Montréal. We are inviting you to submit your contributions to assemble the conference program.

This twice-yearly conference brings together researchers, users, developers and enthusiasts of Semantic MediaWiki and related projects, such as Wikidata. Semantic MediaWiki is a family of extensions to the open-source wiki software MediaWiki (best known for powering Wikipedia) that allow a wiki to store structured data in addition to textual content, thereby, turning a wiki into a flexible, collaborative knowledge repository.

As we are putting together themes and speakers of the upcoming conference, we welcome new contributions from you on the applications and development of semantic wikis (for a list of topics, see below). You can propose your contributions on the conference website in form of regular talks, posters or super-short lightning talks. All submitted proposals will be reviewed and we will do our best to consider your proposal in the conference program. If you've already announced your talk it's now time to expand its description.

Please note that all tutorials and presentations will be video and audio recorded and made available for others after the conference.

Interesting. I like the comment in 'semantic challenges' about 'pesky booleans'. I wonder if there are any suggestions about how to deal with these from a design perspective. Design is usually (if not always) an iterative process, so it's understandable if you only, in practice, discover your assumptions after the first pass or so, but, it seems to me, that assuming something is a simple boolean, rather than investigating the requirements more closely during your initial requirements analysis, might be an important thing to be aware/beware of.

In their particular example, they have an entity 'a shop' and give it the property 'has quay'... but, 'has quay' is not a boolean property, there are qualifications about it (as the article says). It's a case, I think, for fuzzy logic - but how to recognise that in a semantic wiki? Could you have sub-relations to the 'has quay' relation that, collectively give a robust value of 1 if the shop is on the quay and the quay is huge and free for everybody or .1 if it is 500m from the quay and the quay itself is only usable in mid-summer on alternate Fridays?

What do you think?

Yeah, such an information should go to https://semantic-mediawiki.org/wiki/Talk:SMWCon_Fall_2013 to create direct contact between the people involved.

Free, open-source extension to MediaWiki - lets you store & query data
Introduction

Semantic MediaWiki (SMW) is a free, open-source extension to MediaWiki – the wiki software that powers Wikipedia – that lets you store and query data within the wiki's pages.

Semantic MediaWiki is also a full-fledged framework, in conjunction with many spinoff extensions, that can turn a wiki into a powerful and flexible “collaborative database”. All data created within SMW can easily be published via the Semantic Web, allowing other systems to use this data seamlessly.
