My company’s product, Twine.com, has made it to the finalist round in the Crunchies, a new annual tech industry awards competition, under the Best Technical Achievement category. Please help us win by casting your vote for Twine here. Thanks!
UPDATE: It turns out, that for some odd reason the Crunchies allows each voter to vote once per day per category — in other words, you can vote multiple times in the same category — one vote per user per day — so please vote for Twine again if you can.

Peter Royal got me interested in GRDDL recently. It looks like something we may want to use here at Radar Networks for scraping data from the Web and turning it into RDF triples. After doing a little digging around lately, I’m wondering if there is a list of sites that support GRDDL yet?… Read More “What's cooking on GRDDL?”
