06:53:11<bblfish>hi
06:54:56<renke2>Hey
06:57:14<bblfish>yes
06:57:29<renke2>jup
07:52:06<dmiles_afk>do i need to gensym to assert arity 3 assertions to jena?
07:54:18<dmiles_afk>(p3 a b c)
07:54:22<dmiles_afk> -> (p3-1 r1 a ) (p3-2 r1 b) (p3-3 r1 c) ?
07:54:47<dmiles_afk>r1 being the (p3 a b c)
07:55:17<dmiles_afk>r not for rule .. it just the gensym
07:56:12<dmiles_afk>however when i start added arity3 rules.. oh lordy
08:34:00<Jubei>q: I have an rdf data store with information about apartments for rent (address/geographical coordinates) I have another one with information about say schools (address/geographical coordinates). I want to make a query and get the distance from the house to the school for instance. What is the best way to do that with the currently available semantic web technologies?
08:34:35<Jubei>i want to be able to do that without explicitly telling my script WHERE the data stores for houses and schools are
08:34:51<Jubei>in essence what I am asking is, is there any "services" support for rdf data at the moment?
08:35:34<Jubei>some sort of centralized index? no such thing right?
08:37:05<kwijibo>Jubei: you want your application to be able to query an index to find out which stores to query?
08:37:26<Jubei>well... ideally yes but I dont think thats possible right now ^_^
08:37:35<Jubei>is it?
08:37:53<kwijibo>no, but it's being worked on :p
08:38:02<Jubei>kwijibo: by whom? do you know?
08:38:22<kwijibo>there is sindice which you can use to find out what uris are in what documents on the web
08:39:22<kwijibo>but as for stores and sparql endpoints, some of us are working on a vocabulary called voiD for describing datasets (with sparqlendpoints)
08:39:50<Jubei>kwijibo: the reason I am asking is because I am interested in getting involved in such research
08:39:58<kwijibo>the aim being that dataset publishers can describe what is in their datasets, what license there is, what endpoints are available
08:40:25<kwijibo>and those descriptions can be aggregated, and then queried
08:40:37<xjrn>Jubei: to implement? as in coding?
08:41:12<Jubei>xjrn: no, I am asking to find out what exists on the "services" level for the semantic web, what kwijibo said.
08:41:27<kwijibo>http://community.linkeddata.org/MediaWiki/index.php?VoiD
08:43:05<kwijibo>Jubei: so I doubt this is a complete answer to your question, but it is the beginnings of one, and will hopefully tie in with things like federated SPARQL
08:44:52<xjrn> Jubei your scenario goes good with google earth
08:45:21<xjrn>ACTION runs
08:45:44<Jubei>xjrn: I know ^_^
08:46:09<Jubei>xjrn: or google maps even. thats my final goal anyway
08:46:55<xjrn>if it was your data you can dump spreadsheets of some sort into google base
08:50:25<Jubei>I wish somebody would start an public open project like google maps. a wiki-like map where anybody can contribute. coz I dont really like the idea of feeding my data to the devil (google)
16:47:09<bengee>oh, data.semanticweb.org/sparql returns JSON as default format for Accept */*
16:47:53<bengee>looks like sparqlbot needs better conneg...
