Some W3C Documents in EPUB3ivanherman

Sat, 18 Jan 2014 11:04:26 +0000

I have been having fun the past few months, when I had some time, with a tool to convert official W3C publications (primarily Recommendations) into EPUB3. Apart from the fact that this helped me to dive into some details of the EPUB3 Specification, I think the result might actually be useful. Indeed, it often happens […]

Data vs. Publishing: my change of responsibilities…ivanhermanFairly Lake Botanical Garden, Shenzhen, China

Sat, 04 Jan 2014 13:29:24 +0000

There was an official announcement, as well as some references, on the fact that the structure of data related work has changed at W3C. A new activity has been created called “Data Activity”, that subsumes what used to be called the Semantic Web Activity. “Subsumes” is an important term here: W3C does not abandon the […]

Public Access—oh Irony!ivanherman

Thu, 15 Aug 2013 09:37:35 +0000

I found a Force11 reference on Google+ to a NYT article. The article is entitled “How to Share Scientific Data”, which is a topic I am interested in both privately and also professionally as part of my W3C work (publishing scientific data on the Web is coming to the fore as a major area of […]

The value of community driven content (OSM vs. Google Map)ivanhermanNotre dame de la garde

Sun, 11 Aug 2013 10:51:44 +0000

This is just a nice little example which might be worth noting for those who do not know Open Street Map (I am also a relatively new user of it). I had a nice walk in Marseille yesterday, which included going down from the big cathedral on the top of the hill (“Notre Dame de […]

Multilingual Linked Open Data?ivanhermanLogo of the EU Multilingual Web Project

Experts developing Web sites for various cultures and languages know that it is way better to include such features into Web pages at the start, i.e., at the time of the core design, rather than to “add” them once the site is done. What is valid for Web sites is also valid for data deployed on […]

RDFa 1.1, microdata, and turtle-in-HTML now in the core distribution of RDFLibivanherman

Fri, 01 Mar 2013 12:14:45 +0000

This has been in the works for a while, but it is done now: the latest (3.4.0 version) of the python RDFLib library has just been released, and it includes and RDFa 1.1, microdata, and turtle-in-HTML parser. In other words, the user can add structured data to an HTML file, and that will be parsed […]

My last week was all around digital publishing: first, I was at the W3C Workshop on eBooks and the Open Web Platform, that I helped to organize. If I extrapolate from the discussions at the W3C Workshop, there are good prospects that this topic will become more important at the W3C, and that it will […]

Mountain Lion Installation woes…ivanhermanCougar / Puma / Mountain Lion / Panther (Puma ...

Mon, 24 Dec 2012 13:38:44 +0000

It is December and, just as last year, it is the time for an upgrade of OS X. Last year it was Lion (and I did write down my experiences back then); this time it is Mountain Lion. I decided to make a short note of my experiences because, maybe, by sharing those I will […]

Nice RDFa 1.1 example…ivanhermanCover page for Ghosh's novel, the Sea of Poppies

Mon, 26 Nov 2012 21:20:10 +0000

I know I had seen that before, but I ran into this again: the site (a must for book lovers…) has a nice structure using RDFa 1.1. Let us take an example page for a book, say, one of the latest books of Amitav Ghosh, the “Sea of poppies”. The page itself has all […]

RDFa 1.1 and microdata now part of the main branch of RDFLibivanherman

Tue, 06 Nov 2012 19:34:40 +0000

A while ago I wrote of the fact that I have adapted my RDFa and microdata to RDFlib. Although I did some work on it since then, nothing really spectacular happened (e.g., I have updated the microdata part to the latest version of the microdata->RDF conversion note, and I have also gone through the tedious exercise […]
