Last week, Greg Hadfield introduced the Open Data Cities conference, and explained the thinking behind it. Now, I’d like to point out some of the great things happening with geographic data that tie in with the conference’s theme. This Year’s Geovation Challenge from the Ordnance Survey is up and running, and Greg has written about […]

Greg Hadfield Introduces Open Data Cities

February 14, 2012 by

By Greg Hadfield Living in a city in the 21st century is a truly remarkable experience. Without exaggeration, it presents an historic opportunity. Humankind has been on the planet for about 160,000 years; cities have existed for, say, 6,000 years; we have used the internet for barely 50 years. We do indeed live in interesting […]

Monkigras

Monkigras gathered developers in the chairs, on the stage, along the streams of comments for two days and did not struggle to keep the attention of a highly engaged audience. Mixing in free and endless espresso with many varieties of beer were unnecessary in the light of interesting speakers and the vitality of the crew […]

We will be joining the Mobile Monday February gathering in London to talk about data-driven mobile apps. We’ve been looking into this world, and investigating developers’ needs for useful data; and had a go just before Christmas at working on an app ourselves. So, to explore further, Kasabi are sponsoring the Mobile Monday on 13 […]

Media, Freedom and the Web

November 10, 2011 by

This last weekend, I found myself wearing a lab coat, meeting people working on some of the most interesting projects on the web, while in the queue to an entirely free espresso bar. And, I kept seeing human-sized foxes walking about and dancing. I was fairly sure I needed to wake up. In fact, I […]

On Monday I gave a talk at the SemTechBiz conference: “The RDF Report Card: Beyond the Triple Count“. I’ve published the slides on Slideshare which I’ve embedded below, but I thought I’d also post some of my notes here. The RDF Report Card: Beyond the Triple Count View more presentations from Leigh Dodds I’ve felt […]

Last week, I had the fun of giving a very quick talk and a demo of Kasabi in Nottingham. I was at the Open Source GIS conference, and the track covered open government data. I also had the pleasure of being able to listen to the session ahead of my talk. Dr Mooney and Professor […]

SemTech Thoughts

June 16, 2011 by

0

Attending SemTech 2011 last week I was struck by a shift in emphasis from “What If?” to “Here’s How”. I think there were more people sharing their experiences, technical & business approaches, and general war stories than on previous years. I think this reflects both the extent to which semantic technologies are, slowly, percolating into […]
