Let’s twist again

Posted by

Whether you’re at a rave or throwing shapes on your own lounge floor. There are times it is impossible to stop moving and times to stop and to catch your breath. Well as summer hit the northern part of this world, the LODLAM community has been twisting it out on the dance floor.

LODLAM training delivered at SemTech (19 August 2014)

What a line up!? There are reasons to get teleporting sorted out and this was one of them for those of us that couldn’t make it to SemTech. Jon has given an insight to the day’s events and has posted the slides and videos of talks (and I’ve relisted the talks here too).

Publishing, Sharing, and Opening

  • Sylvia Southwick and Cory Lampert, UNLV, Librarians’ adventure into LODLAM
  • Eric Lease Morgan, Notre Dame, Publishing LOD with a bent toward archivists (post)
  • Rob Sanderson, Stanford, International Image Interoperability Framework and JSON-LD (slides)
  • Richard Wallis, OCLC, Worldcat, Works, and Schema.org (slides)

Discovery, Visualization, and Reuse

  • Eetu Mäkelä, Aalto University School of Science, What to do with Linked Data?
  • Ethan Gruber, American Numismatic Society, 0 to 60 on SPARQL queries in 50 minutes (slides)

  • Duane Degler & Neal Johnson, Design for Context, Now What? Creating Innovative LODLAM Sites & Apps (slides)


More Linked Open Data fora for GLAMs

There are fora been and coming that it will be worth following discussions on:

Probably there are more, additions welcome!

For the curious, yes, the inspiration for this post came from Chubby Checker. That man can move!
