The Semantic Desktop, SPARQL and You!

You've probably heard about the Semantic Web and the Semantic Desktop. But what lies behind the buzzwords? Let's look together at at effective examples, running code and actual applications. Be inspired, tame the sparql beast and join the future of desktop computing!

We will demonstrate:

  • "Daily Catchup", which uses Tracker to mash together feeds from Facebook, Twitter and Flickr
  • Solang, a photo browser built on SPARQL
  • FSter, a FUSE file system to browse files by their metadata information
  • Gnome Activity Journal: see what you did when.
