This week we began letting the second wave of beta users into the Twine invite-only beta. It’s been a very busy and exciting time for the Twine team. I’ll be providing more detailed stats on an ongoing basis in a few weeks once we have more data to analyze.… Read More “First Week of Twine Beta Phase II Report”
I want to remind everyone, TWINE IS A BETA. It is only a beta. Beta means not finished, under development, work in progress, construction site, imperfect, open to feedback, undergoing testing, getting better everyday, in need of more work, etc. and many other things that are not synonymous with “finished” or “ready for consumer launch.”… Read More “Reminder: Twine is a Beta — A note about what Beta means”
I’m here at the BlogTalk conference in Cork, Ireland with a range of bloggers and technologists discussing the emerging social Web. Including myself, Ian Davis and Paul Miller from Talis, there are also a bunch of other Semantic Web folks including Dan Brickley, and a group from DERI Galway.… Read More “How about Web 3G?”
This is a video of me giving commentary on my "Understanding the Semantic Web" talk and how it relates to Twine, to a group of French business school students who made a visit to our office last month.
There has been a lot of hype about artificial intelligence over the years. And recently it seems there has been a resurgence in interest in this topic in the media. But artificial intelligence scares me. And frankly, I don’t need it.… Read More “Artificial Stupidity: The Next Big Thing”
The Crunchies are done. At Radar Networks we are really honored to have our product, Twine.com, nominated as a finalist for Best Technology Innovation of 2007. It was very cool to see our Twine logo up there on stage next to Facebook, Digg, LinkedIn and so many other incredible companies — especially considering we were the only company that was still in closed Beta in the awards (and yes, we are coming out of closed beta in March, so get ready!).… Read More “Fun With CoolWhip: The Twine Crunchies Video”
As I blogged earlier, my company’s product, Twine.com, has been nominated as a finalist for the Best Technology Achievement of 2007 in the TechCrunch Crunchies awards. You can vote once per day, per browser, it appears (they have a very scientific voting process it seems), so please cast your vote for Twine (and the Semantic Web) by voting every day until January 10 when voting ends.… Read More “Help the Semantic Web Win the Crunchies”
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.
If you are going to be in San Francisco on December 13, please join me at the SD Forum Semantic Web SIG event. I’ll be demoing Twine, along with several other presenters showing other interesting apps that relate the semweb. This is a repeat of last month’s SD Forum event in Palo Alto which was so good that they’ve asked us all to come back and do it again.… Read More “Twine Demo at Upcoming Semantic Web SIG in SF on Dec 13”
The most interesting and exciting new app I’ve seen this month (other than Twine of course!) is a new semantic search engine called True Knowledge. Go to their site and watch their screencast to see what the next generation of search is really going to look like.… Read More “True Knowledge is Cool”
Last night I saw that the video of my presentation of Twine at the Web 2.0 Summit is online. My session, "The Semantic Edge," featured Danny Hillis of Metaweb demoing Freebase, Barney Pell demoing Powerset, and myself Demoing Twine, followed by a brief panel discussion with Tim O’Reilly (in that order).… Read More “A Video and an Audio Cast About Twine”
What a week it has been for Radar Networks. We have worked so hard these last few days to get ready to unveil Twine, and it has been a real thrill to show our work and get such positive feedback and support from the industry, bloggers, the media and potential users.… Read More “What a Week!”
Now that GRDDL is officially on its way to becoming a W3C open
standard, I’m even more interested in its potential. For those who don’t know,
GRDDL provides a way to map from non-RDF data into RDF, on-the-fly. So for
example, if a semantic web app needs data from some Web page, and that page
does not contain RDF, a GRDDL transform can be provided that maps that Web
page’s content to appropriate RDF.… Read More “Proposal for GRDDLR: The Open Source GRDDL Repository”
