WOD-PD 2008 | Web of Data Practitioners Days

On Wednesday and Thursday I attended the Web of Data Practitioners Days (WOD-PD 2008) at “Altes AKH” in Vienna. AFAIK it was the first event of such a kind, it was something in between academic presentations and hands-on sessions, everything about Semantic Web and its related technologies.

I liked this format of a workshop very much, especially the “hacking session” in the evening of the first day with its “lightning talks”, and of course the socializing in between the talks. I finally had the chance to talk to some guys I already knew from various blogs and publications, but never have met in real life.

The Semantic Web Company (an austrian company who is pushing the Semantic Web topic really hard forward) was represented by Jana Herwig and published a few blog posts summarizing the talks of the event:

The proceedings are online with almost all presentations and links to the web sites which were used for the hands-on sessions.

Oh yes, of course there are pictures online on Flickr tagged with wodpd2008.

Aggregation of Summer School feeds

I played around with Yahoo! Pipes and created an aggregating feed of all Summer School blog posts which have been registered at Pageflakes earlier this week.

Excursion to St. Naum

I just uploaded the GPS track points of our excursion to St. Naum to Google Maps. Obviously we crossed the border to Albania.


You can load this map in Google Earth as well; you can download the KML data for doing this.

I also geotagged my pictures, they are aligned on a map at flickr.
