Cool URIs for the Semantic Web used on Wikipedia

Ah, the word spreads. Excellent:

In the Semantic Web realm, dereferencable URIs offer the critical fabric that drive the giant global graph of interconnected data popularly referred to as Linked Data; a term also coined by Tim Berners-Lee in his Linked Data Design Note[1] and furthered by other articles such as "Cool URIs for the Semantic Web" by Sauermann and Cygniak[2].

//en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dereferenceable_Uniform_Resource_Identifier

So, I hope the URI crisis is over now, lets see how it turns out in the next years.

the URI article needed an expert

And I also spent now an hour to read through the discussion and try to improve two paragraphs.
//en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Uniform_Resource_Identifier#Refinement_of_specifications

Well, yep, I am an expert on URIs. Who would have thought...

The Polish Wikipedia (entry on URI) referred to the Cool URIs article already back in March 2007

NEPOMUK on Cordis results

CORDIS, a page managed by the EU, hosts an article about the results of the NEPOMUK project. Again, Ansgar Bernardi gave a great interview and brought it to the point.

Semantic desktop paves the way for the semantic web
chicken-egg problem

“For example, I was taking notes at a summer school we recently held in Malta and I was writing the information into a wiki application on my computer. With Nepomuk installed, each time I mentioned a speaker’s name I was given the opportunity to link to contact details and other data about that person I already had stored on the computer,” Bernardi, a researcher at the German Research Centre for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI), explains.

And the ancient myths of NEPOMUK, tales of the past that are worth passed on :-)
"The idea of building a semantic desktop arose from the fact that one of our colleagues could not keep track of the girlfriends of his friends because they kept changing," Bernardi says. “Social networking sites such as Facebook only go half way towards solving the problem because they do not provide an actual assessment of relations between people based on all the information available to you and your interpretation of it… Much of that information is hidden on your computer in files, emails, contact books, pictures, in the names and structures of your folders. Nepomuk provides a more efficient way of managing that information."

Well, recently I drank a beer with the friend who had so many girlfriends and it appeared that he also kept forgetting his girlfriend's names...

One spin-off company from coordinating partner DFKI is in the process of being established, and Bernardi says others may follow.
Ha, thats me!

Semantic desktop

The Semantic Desktop is a collective term for ideas related to changing a computer's user interface and data handling capabilities so that data is more easily shared between different applications or tasks and so that data that once could not be automatically processed by a computer could be. Thanks for sharing.
