Why are you interested in the Semantic Web?

I've been designing and building RDF(S)/OWL ontologies for several years now. I want my models to interconnect with everyone else's. It's smart to mark up web pages with meaning.

What is your general background in technology, data modeling, and philosophy?

Former programmer, current ontologist. My philosophy: it may look like a document, but there's a conceptual model behind it! Also that models should be elegant and correct, but above all usable.

What technologies or platforms are you using to work with Semantic Web data?

Out of the available options: semantic web. I think linked data is related but slightly different. I don't think any of the names really resonate with the non-geek community.


I build OWL ontologies for a living, though not necessarily for the semantic web. I want to connect with other Portland folks who are interested in semantic web and semantics in general.
