This last day of TRIPLE-I, the conference consisting of three events (I-SEMANTICS,I-KNOW, I-MEDIA) was probably my favourite one, even though I am of course a bit biased: It was Linked Data day, with a keynote by Tom Heath which I will cover in more detail on Monday, but we need to be heading home now.
The key issue for me still is the quest for making the Web of Data a reality, and I once again noted that the main question raised within the Semantic Web community continues to be: “We have such a great technology – why isn’t everybody adopting?” I guess that the answers somewhere are along the lines of this comment from Greg Boutin:
Defining a process for introducing Linked Data like a new product to the market – that is what I’d like!
The last keynote today was given by Dickson Lukose from the Research and Development agency MIMOS in Malaysia – the Malaysian government seems to be putting a lot of money into IT R & D at the moment. Anyone looking for a good place to get a startup funded might consider doing it in Malaysia!
