The sustainability stream (in which I was involved) published a detailed recap of the OKFestival, don’t miss this!

At the same time, videos of most of the sessions have been added to the web page of the streams. Look out for the keyword “video documentation” that have been added to the original description of the sustainability stream.

Green Hackathon at OKFestival in Helsinki

And so it was time again! We are going to run a two-days Green Hackathon at the OKFestival in Helsinki. The conference will last for the whole week with the Green Hackathon happening on September 19 and 20. I will not write so much more in this blog, I link instead to other sites where event information and press releases have been published.

You do not need a ticket for the OKFestival in order to participate in the Green Hackathon, however, you have to sign up at http://lanyrd.com/2012/okfestival-green-hackathon/ to get your name onto the guest list.

See you in Helsinki!

WOD-PD 2008 | Web of Data Practitioners Days

On Wednesday and Thursday I attended the Web of Data Practitioners Days (WOD-PD 2008) at “Altes AKH” in Vienna. AFAIK it was the first event of such a kind, it was something in between academic presentations and hands-on sessions, everything about Semantic Web and its related technologies.

I liked this format of a workshop very much, especially the “hacking session” in the evening of the first day with its “lightning talks”, and of course the socializing in between the talks. I finally had the chance to talk to some guys I already knew from various blogs and publications, but never have met in real life.

The Semantic Web Company (an austrian company who is pushing the Semantic Web topic really hard forward) was represented by Jana Herwig and published a few blog posts summarizing the talks of the event:

The proceedings are online with almost all presentations and links to the web sites which were used for the hands-on sessions.

Oh yes, of course there are pictures online on Flickr tagged with wodpd2008.

Excursion to St. Naum

I just uploaded the GPS track points of our excursion to St. Naum to Google Maps. Obviously we crossed the border to Albania.


You can load this map in Google Earth as well; you can download the KML data for doing this.

I also geotagged my pictures, they are aligned on a map at flickr.
