I googled for the semantic web (on movies) and all I got was powerpoints

Bullocks!

I googled for movie ontologies and all I got was powerpoints.

In what world am I?

then I found this: please, God, put me into the parallel universe where people do indeed make the semantic web.

at least clusty...

at least, a real search engine like clusty had some results:

clusties try on movie ontologies

But we do

I hope God doesn't put you into that parallel universe. You would be missed around here ;-)

Hi Richard, thanks :-) Nice to hear that.

Here's the result of a Swoogle search. There's not much out there, which is surprising given how popular movies are and we can probably agree pretty easily on the basic vocabulary. We're in the process of putting online one developed by an (old) student project -- see //ontology.umbc.edu/imdb/.

Amazon

You "just" have to convince Amazon to work with one or two Semantic Web enthusiasts to really have an available ontology schema for IMDB.

In case you don't know because it's very hidden.

amazon & comments

I expect that in a few years we don't convince people, they will come to us to ask how to do it. Look at RSS, that was also RDF at the beginning. Also simple things like DOAP, FOAF, and GEO are taken up pretty good.

For example danbri's GEO vocab was taken up by the GEORSS people, they just use the namespace. thats lowercase semantic web alive, sharing of namespaces to identify strings that mean the same.

About the commenting system: I am using the free blogging platform by twoday.net, which is popular in Austria. They are masters of configuration. Hope it doesn't cause too much hassle.

Talk on Semantic Desktop at ZGDV, 19.10.2006

There is a congres on "Semantic Web und Wissenstechnologien" in Darmstadt at ZGDV on 19th October 2006.

There are many interesting people from Germany giving talks there, Benjamin Novack from the hacker side, Georg Lausen, Andreas Kupfer, Michael Stollberg from Innsbruck, Torsten Priebe from Capgemini Austria, Holger Rath from Empolis, Achim Steinacker from intelligent views, and Leo Sauermann from myself.

If you are a student of university, reduced conference fee for academics is 120€/290€.
