AB Meta: Extensible RDFa-based format for declaring everyday things in HTML, Aleks Isklod

AB Meta is a simple, RDFa-based format for annotating pages that are about things. A book publisher can use AB Meta to provide information about a book such as the author and ISBN, a restaurant owner can provide information such as the cuisine, phone number and address and a movie reviewer can annotate reviews with movie titles and directors. The format allows site owners to describe the main thing on the HTML page using standard META headers. The AB Meta format also allows content owners to declare multiple things in each page using standard RDFa notation.

Glue: Browser addon that connects people around things they visit.

Glue is the browser addon that leverages semantic technologies to automatically connect people around things they visit online. Glue works automatically as you browse popular sites about books, music, movies, wines, restaurants, gadgets, stocks, actors, tv shows and other everyday things around the web. The Glue bar appears right on your current page to show you friends who looked at the same things and what they thought.

Machine Learning Techniques for the Semantic Web Intro
Speaker: Paul Dix

Machine Learning Techniques for the Semantic Web are key to bring intelligent services to the web and the enterprise. Paul Dix will present the current state of the art in the field and address their relevance to product development.

    Excellent demos and speakers, and very informative in regard to basic understanding of semantic web and how it works for social networking, etc.

    Another great meetup! And having it in such a beautiful NYC landmark as the Hearst Tower made it even better still!
    For those who are so inclined, I LiveScribed the session here -
    Be forewarned about my chicken scratches though - just treat them as visual bookmarks to what was being said at the time I was inking (never mind, writing).

    Overall, it was awesome. Since the weather is beautiful outside, if the intros could be kept to a minimum next time, that would be great :-)

    Thanks again to Marco's group and Hearst. Very interesting meetup group. I enjoyed the presentations and presenters. Mike from Hearst seems like a interesting guy doing some interesting things, Alex @ AdaptiveBlue is doing something very cool with Glue, (I think I will install and take it for a ride) and Paul did a great job of providing a semantic web/machine learning overview in what, 15 minutes?

    Mike, Alex, and Paul were really great. Marco, it's fabulous that you organize these. Thank you. One issue, tho: the introductions were too long. You started at 7:00 and Mike Dunn didn't begin until 7:35. Alex didn't begin until 7:50. 5-10 minutes of intro MAX would be better, I think. Save time for networking afterwards. Also, the invitation was for 6:45, so the late start stretched things further.
