08:04:24<kwijibo>ACTION waves from ESWC and wonders who else is here
08:25:21<KjetilK>ACTION isn't :-(
08:25:40<kwijibo>KjetilK: here? or wondering?
08:27:20<KjetilK>no, I'm not there. It was in my plans to go, but there wasn't time
08:27:31<KjetilK>but I'll most likely make it to the linked data planet
08:46:20<danbri>http://www.glennjones.net/Post/836/Microformatstest-suiteconcept.htm
08:46:43<danbri>A:|"microformats test suite concept", Glen Jones
09:15:34<danbri>A:Try it here (press alt-x access key): [http://ufxtract.com/testsuite/hcard/hcard1.htm|hcard1.html]
09:16:41<CloCkWeR1>ACTION gets a 404?
09:17:37<CloCkWeR1>ah hah
09:17:46<CloCkWeR1>don't trust your irc client :)
09:25:56<danbri>http://www.slideshare.net/choonkeat/oauth4-and-oauth4r
09:26:03<danbri>B|Oauth overview
11:22:35<kwijibo>the internet connection at eswc is almost unusably bad :(
11:30:09<libby>that's the usual situation :-/
14:18:52<bengee>ACTION wonders about eswc backchannel, tries #eswc
17:26:54<mhausenblas>ACTION notes that the LOD gathering at ESWC08 has started
17:27:24<mhausenblas>Tom gave an overview on linked data (opening the data silos)
17:27:44<mhausenblas>currently, Chris introduces the SWEO LOD project
17:28:14<mhausenblas>we'll have a lot of lightning talks (seven, IIRC)
17:36:41<mhausenblas>Chris talks about the many institutions that have published LOD datasets (both academic and commercial institutions)
17:39:51<mhausenblas>next, Chris introduces some applications build on top of the LOD datasets (browsers, mashup, DBpedia mobile, search engines, microSearch)
17:40:14<mhausenblas>Finally, Chris gives a short outlook (what's up next year)
17:40:33<mhausenblas>1. conversion of further datasets
17:40:41<mhausenblas>2. wappers
17:40:58<mhausenblas>3. increase amount and quality of links
17:41:30<mhausenblas>4. data fusion (integrated view on data about an entity)
17:41:35<kasei>is the list of applications he mentioned available anywhere? the wiki?
17:42:05<mhausenblas>kasei, yes, there has been a talk at LDOW/WWW08
17:42:25<mhausenblas>ACTION notes that the network here is soooo crap, therefor I can'T give links
17:42:42<mhausenblas>ACTION the only thing that seems to work properly is IRC and skype ;)
17:42:47<kasei>understood. just wondering for future reference.
17:43:46<mhausenblas>we'll put the talks given here online as well
17:44:09<mhausenblas>ACTION notes that as soon as the network starts to work here, the Wiki will be updated as well
17:44:47<kasei>"as soon as"? is it expected to improve?
17:45:12<kasei>heya, tom!
17:45:21<cerealtom>ACTION waves at kasei
17:45:42<kasei>ACTION waves back from airportland
17:45:57<mhausenblas>kasei, the local organiser told they have 'spoken to the hotel IT manager' :)
17:46:50<kasei>well that's good. maybe it'll be working by the time I arrive :)
17:46:51<cerealtom>http://events.linkeddata.org/ldow2008/papers/08-miller-styles-open-data-commons.pdf
17:48:36<mhausenblas>1. lightning talk Orii from OpenLink
17:49:07<mhausenblas>talks about background (RDBMS such as Oracle, etc.)
17:50:07<mhausenblas>with the rise of RDF, the whole thing started to get more interesting
17:50:34<mhausenblas>see many ontologies coming from all sorta domains
17:51:14<mhausenblas>we have built an application suite that implements linked data principles
17:51:40<mhausenblas>inclusing collaborative apps such as Wiki, blogs, etc.
17:51:47<mhausenblas>everything available from ODS
17:52:04<mhausenblas>allows coherent present of your data
17:52:39<mhausenblas>other things: federated sources
17:53:00<mhausenblas>we have hosted lot of the LOD datasets
17:53:31<mhausenblas>you can rent EC2 infrastructure for your data
17:53:53<mhausenblas>2. lightning talk Richard from DERI
17:54:07<mhausenblas>he talks about sindice.com
17:54:26<mhausenblas>we index microformats as well (not only RDF)
17:54:40<mhausenblas>have some 50M+ documents
17:54:59<mhausenblas>lots of social graph, geolocation, tags, open data
17:55:11<mhausenblas>and: special-interest community data
17:55:24<mhausenblas>'to use the data you have to find it'
17:55:48<mhausenblas>find good documents that talk about x, identifiers that talk about y, etc
17:56:23<mhausenblas>we crawl the Web, index keywords and URIs and offers search interface + API for developers
17:56:49<mhausenblas>we don't: triple store, SPARQL; full content
17:57:05<mhausenblas>we tell you where the data is, you fetch it yourself
17:57:24<mhausenblas>Richard explains the basic API operations
17:57:45<mhausenblas>and kinda announces soon to come features
17:58:03<mhausenblas>restricting domains, ontology, format, etc
17:58:13<mhausenblas>query inferred triples
17:58:34<mhausenblas>find entities and real-time smushing
17:58:47<mhausenblas>talks about sindice-under the hood
17:59:10<mhausenblas>call for contribution. send a ping
17:59:16<mhausenblas>semantic sitemaps
18:00:29<mhausenblas>3. lightning talk Andraz from Zemanta
18:00:55<mhausenblas>our software analysis text and suggest links
18:02:06<mhausenblas>author feedbacks while creating the link
18:02:18<mhausenblas>context is needed (social data)
18:04:19<mhausenblas>4. Alexandre about moat
18:04:36<mhausenblas>aim to resolve free-tagging
18:05:00<mhausenblas>we have an ontology to represent local and global meaning of tags
18:05:20<mhausenblas>and a framewark to assign and share meaning to tags
18:06:47<mhausenblas>explains global and local meaning
18:07:41<mhausenblas>now he explains the architecture
18:07:59<mhausenblas>we have a Drupal client
18:10:05<mhausenblas>5. Denny (AIFB) on semanticweb.org
18:10:15<mhausenblas>based on Semantic Media Wiki
18:11:12<mhausenblas>based on simple Syntax user can add links, parsed as RDF then
18:11:24<mhausenblas>can query Wiki pages
18:11:36<mhausenblas>easy exchange
18:11:46<mhausenblas>big language support
18:12:11<mhausenblas>maaaaany instiutions using it (100+ ?)
18:12:19<mhausenblas>now: semanticweb.org
18:12:42<mhausenblas>provide community pages for events, people, tools, standards, etc.
18:13:50<mhausenblas>demonstrates usage (browse for interconnection)
18:14:29<mhausenblas>linked with revyu.com, etc.
18:15:02<mhausenblas>'we have cool URI's for everyhting'
18:16:04<mhausenblas>6. DanBri on SocialGraph
18:16:20<mhausenblas>FOAF/XFN in Google Social Graph API
18:17:16<mhausenblas>API parses microformat XFN and FOAF/RDF
18:17:28<mhausenblas>FOAF: redland
18:17:45<mhausenblas>shows JSON API
18:18:46<mhausenblas>now on test cases
18:19:48<mhausenblas>Test cases: map pages to pseudo-triples
18:20:02<mhausenblas>discards leftover RDF but ope ideas
18:21:10<mhausenblas>7. Michael Witbrock on Cyc
18:21:51<mhausenblas>two things: Cyc vocabulary (interconnected)
18:21:56<mhausenblas>LaRK
18:22:46<mhausenblas>lot of roles, terms, etc.
18:22:52<mhausenblas>free licensed
18:23:22<mhausenblas>LaRK is an EU project about Web-scale reasoning
18:23:50<mhausenblas>enables register sources
18:24:20<mhausenblas>support inferental services
18:25:10<mhausenblas>Cyc wants to be a stable vocabulary (identifiers will not change)
18:25:42<mhausenblas>8. Michael Hausenblas on UCI and metaLOD
18:37:24<mhausenblas>9. Marko Grobelnik from Josef Stefan on triple extraction from plain text
18:38:03<mhausenblas>we parse sentence, determine SPO from parse tree
18:38:20<mhausenblas>many freely available parses, but deep parsing is hard
18:39:23<mhausenblas>search over triplets
18:40:02<mhausenblas>question answering
18:43:05<mhausenblas>10. Matthias Samwald, Semantic Web company and DERI
18:43:21<mhausenblas>on Health Care and Life Science IG
18:43:48<mhausenblas>covers: molecular biology, neuroscience, medical records, etc.
18:44:17<mhausenblas>similar approach has been taken compared to LOD principles
18:44:56<mhausenblas>presents the HCLS cloud
18:45:28<mhausenblas>some 500 - 1000 million triples
18:45:43<mhausenblas>contains very high quality ontologies
18:46:06<mhausenblas>we could profit from and donate a lot to LOD
18:46:55<mhausenblas>11. Tom Heath on linkeddata.org
18:46:59<mhausenblas>sum up
18:48:01<mhausenblas>see also http://community.linkeddata.org
18:48:42<mhausenblas>gathering ends
18:48:47<mhausenblas>pointer?
18:49:21<mhausenblas>logger, pointer?
18:49:23<mhausenblas>logger, pointer
18:49:33<mhausenblas>ACTION please ;)
18:50:14<mhausenblas>.help
18:50:26<mhausenblas>.command
18:51:24<mhausenblas>ACTION gives up and goes for a beer as well ;)
21:25:56<danja>phenny, tell dajobe chatlogs down - yours? dreamhost?
21:25:56<phenny>danja: I'll pass that on when dajobe is around.
