Second day of the Web n+1 workshop @ Sun Microsystems (Switzerland)

Andreas Blumauer of the Austrian semantic web school gave an overview presentation of semantic web technologies. I met him before at the KnowTech2006. He sees the rise of semantic web technologies as a result of the Glocalization: A mixture of Globalization (Expansion) and Localization (Specificity). In this world, knowledge workers integrate information in complex working environments, but this happens on a personal and local level. Information systems should provide an overview among this limited local level. He said that information systems should be able to answer the following questions, but are currently unable to do so: Who knows what, who knows who? Who knows somebody, who knows something about X?

I mentioned that the skillMap is actually capable of answering exactly these questions and he agreed. The rest of the day went along with overniew presentations of SW-related technologies such as RDF, OWL, SPARQL and D2RQ. I really learned a lot; D2RQ will possibly allow SPARQL-queries to the skillMap without the need to implement RDF om our side. Good news for a possible pilot with Sun.

Plane delay due to snow chaos postponed our arrival in berlin to midnight. I was totally exhusted when I arrived home. Poor Stephan's plane to Stuttgart was cancelled and he had to take a bus from Zurich and was home at 3.

The final part is finishing after which skins can be used to make ugg sandals . Condition the ugg sandals boots skins to about 20% moisture in content in order to make sure ugg becomes soft and elastic. What’s more, an interior piece of uggs sheepskin is added to the pelt which explains twin-faced sheepskin on those stylish UGG Australia . You will never see bad quality on ugg boots because their sheepskin has been straightened by an iron to remove the natural crimp.
