Lightning talk on RDF and the Semantic Web

March 14th, 2003  |  Published in perl, rdf, talks  |  4 Comments

Last night I gave a lightning talk at the techmeet that attempted to explain as simply as possible what RDF and the Semantic Web are, and how you can start playing with them with perl.

The slides (in PDF created using AxPoint) are brief but hopefully useful. At the same meeting, Celia talked about her work at the BBC on modelling Eastenders plots in RDF and Jo talked about spacenamespace, mudlondon and collaborative mapping. It was great to chat to people in the pub afterwards and see a lot of enthusiasm for the ideas.
