Cooking with Kasabi

November 25, 2011 by


Some people may have noticed a change in the way Kasabi’s documentation is laid out, now that it’s more of a book of API info, help and examples. There is a couple of other new “books” up, and I want to point out the kind of Kasabi cookbook of recipes. The recipes are there to […]

Beyond the Triple Count

September 28, 2011 by


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.

Linked Data in Kasabi

August 12, 2011 by


There have been some questions recently about Linked Data support in Kasabi, so in this post I wanted to provide a few pointers on how we support Linked Data publishing, and how to access the data.

Recommended allowance of… Pytassium

Giving RDF Datasets more Affordance

June 16, 2011 by


The following is a version of the talk on Creating APIs over RDF I gave at SemTech 2011. I’ve pruned some of the technical details in favour of linking out to other sources and concentrated here on the core message I was trying to get across. Comments welcome! The Trouble with SPARQL I’m a big […]

Context remains king: why linking is the next big thing

March 23, 2011 by


There was an interesting post published on Programmable Web yesterday about how Foursquare are developing their platform. The most important aspect of that is this goal: to make Foursquare the missing “Rosetta Stone for location, allowing you to link information about a real-world place from one database to any other.” Now it’s not just about […]
