SemWeb Installfest

Thanks to John Faber, Alteresco Clément, and Parisoma, we have a confirmed venue for the SemWeb Installfest:


This is about five blocks from the Civic Center BART station. Alternatively, there should be lots of available parking.

The plan is to have a short presentation (basically, a sales pitch :) on each of several Open Source packages. Then, folks can download the packages they are interested in and try installing them. Once everyone has their packages of interest, we can have some breakout sessions for demos, experimentation, etc.

* "Semantic Web Programming" suite

"Semantic Web Programming" suggests Eclipse 3.4, Java SDK 1.6,
Pellet 1.5.2, and Protege 4.0. I can also help folks install
these tools on Mac OS X and possibly help on other systems.

I've created a HowTo page for installing these on Mac OS X:
If you can help us create a HowTo for another OS, speak up!

* Franz tools

We've had an offer from Franz Inc to help folks install Gruff
(a graph browser) and AllegroGraph (an RDF store). If you are
interested in learning about these tools, please let me know!

* Your favorite tool(s)

If you would like to present another tool and help folks get
started using it, please let me know! Alternatively, feel
free to suggest ideas on [masked].

    I believe most everyone was successful with the technology installations --- the pre-meeting write up of how to install various products was great and helpful. The discussion was lively but because there was so much of it, we didn't have time to look at all the technologies.

    This meetup definitely helped me get started with Protege. I feel like I came away with an improved view of existing semantic technology and some of the current challenges.

    I'm not professionally involved in strict "Semantic Web", i'm working on projects loosely labelled topic mapping. The talks didn't get deep into the Protege sofware (with accents aigu on the "e"s), but the discussions and questions were really interesting;
