Quick RDFa profiling report

Using RDFa to publish linked data

Yesterday we had our first DERI-internal RDFa hands-on workshop. More than 20 colleagues attended, equipped with their laptop and a RDFa cheat sheet we provided. The goal was to support people in manually marking up their Web pages with RDFa, contributing to the growing Web of Data. We plan to hold this workshop every two … Continue reading

Announcing Application Metadata on the Web of Data

I’m just about to release a new version of the voiD editor, called ve2. It’s currently located at http://ld2sd.deri.org/ve2/ (note that this is a temporary location; I gotta find some time setting up our new LiDRC lab environment). Anyway, the point is really: every now and then one deploys a Web application (such as ve2; … Continue reading

HATEOS revisited – RDFa to the rescue?

We all know the old story: data itself may not be very exciting and people actually like applications rather … Continue reading

Let’s step back for a second and try to work through to the core of the issue from a totally different angle. Compare a set of … Continue reading

Toying around with (embedded) WebAccessControl

So TimBL has provided a nice write-up on a Web of Data version of a simple authorization scheme and protocol called WebAccessControl (WAC). It includes a draft of a vocabulary and a protocol (see also open issues with it). I thought it might be nice to have a visual representation of the schema and hence … Continue reading

Exploring linked data inline

So there are a couple of great RDF browser out there already such as Tabulator and ODE or VisiNav, but what I haven’t seen so far is what I call inline-browsing. The before mentioned browsers all more or less take the entire RDF graph and render some sort of tabular or other view (time line, … Continue reading

Alternative approach to escape the ‘non-information’ resource dilemma

As just posted to the TAG list, my ‘attempt to defined non-information resources without using non-information resource‘ – I’d love to learn about your opinion here, in case you are not yet subscribed to the TAG mailing list 😉
