I've finally found a second to drop a note about my keynote.
The keynote: Creating, Deploying, and Exploiting Linked
Data, sought to achieve the fundamental goal of: Demystify the
concept of "Linked Data" using anecdotal material that
resonates with enterprise decision makers.
To my pleasure, 90% of the audience members confirmed
familiarization with the "Data Source Name" concept of
Open Database Connectivity (ODBC). Thus, all I had to do was map
"Linked Data" to ODBC, and then unveil the fundamental add-ons
that "Linked Data" delivers:
- The ability to give database records names (Identifiers)
- The use of HTTP in the database record naming mechanism - which
expands a named database record's reference scope via the expanse
of the Web
(i.e HTTP based Identifiers called URIs).
I believe a majority of attendees came to realize that the
combination above injects a new Web interaction dynamic: access to
"Subject matter Concepts" and Named Entities contained within a page via
HTTP base Data Source Names (URIs).
BTW - My presentation is a Linked Data Space in it's own right courtesy
of the Bibliographic Ontology (which provides slide
show modeling) and RDFa that allows me to embed annotations into
my Slidy based presentation :-)
