Predictions on where it's going
- The Policy Aware Web (presentation by James Hendler)
- Audience/goal: people who know the technical basics of the semantic web and want to know Hendler’s vision on its current status and where it’s going.
- Content: slides 1-24 are about where we are today, with lots of pictures of MindSwap?’s projects; most of the rest is about Hendler’s vision of which technical problems will be solved in the mid-term; “policy aware” stuff is really just on slides 27, 35, and 36.
- NOTE: capital Semantic Web: this guy wants the semantic web to be used to AI style logical inference in the way that MurrayAltheim is skeptical of
Applications / demos
- Flink a social network site of semantic web researchers, built with semantic web technology: “All the information …. has been extracted automatically from web-accessible information sources (including web pages, FOAF profiles, email lists and publication archives) and has been aggregated using semantic technology.”
- MindSwap's WWW-browsable RDF library (perhaps they are using their SemPortal software?

Where do I mention FaaborgBrowser, HolisticProgramming, and N3 ?
- Sesame: an open-source Java framework to do stuff with RDF and RDFS
- Jena: a Java framework including an RDF API, persistence, a reasoner, an ontology API, and support for the RDQL RDF query language.
Triple stores (RDF databases)
- scalability: 100,000,000+ triples
- local: C API
- remote: RDQL or OKBC over HTTP
- Backend: mysql
Mind-bendingly new types of things
- RedFoot: “Redfoot can be best described as a webized Operating System. An operating system where the persistence is built around the notion of an RDF Graph rather than a File Tree”

Is “gnowsys” semantic web software, or something entirely different? “gnowsys … a web based object oriented database server with each object provided by an unique URL. … Optionally, data can remain anywhere on the Internet (only the metadata stays in the database).”.
