Hi Semantic Web Meet Up,
I was introduced to Semantic Web at a Refresh San Diego Meet Up where Barbara lead an introduction and discussion. SW was totally new to me and more than I could digest in one sitting, but Barbara's presentation piqued my interest.
Back in June, Marco Neumann sent out a much welcome link to Sando Hawke's technical introduction to Semantic Web. I watched that video at least four times trying to get a handle on the concept and how to use it in a website I manage.
I continued to research the subject by reviewing blogs and websites when I stumbled across Calais. Cool, I thought. I've found an application that will analyis and install the tags for me. I downloaded the free application tried to Semantic Web-ize my .NET website. Well, long story, short the application didn't work. I kept getting 'fail' messages. Lots of online research. Couldn't solve the problem (with this software).
So here are my questions:
1) Is there another free or low-priced application that anyone can recommend that would analyze and install the rdf tags for me?
2) do you recommend using this type of software at all? Or am I better off installing the tags manually?
3) can I / should I put simple triples in the <head> of my site?
4) can anyone point me to a site(s) where I can research the subject further. I'm looking for some how-to information rather than conceptual information.
Thanks taking the time to read my post.
