Following the Linked Data principles, the BBC is publishing a URI for every TV and Radio programme it broadcasts, music artists and more recently animal species and habitats. These pages not only provide useful information in their own right but also allow us to re-contextualise the programme information helping users to discover new content and new patterns. In this seminar we will present the motivation behind these projects and how their design and implementation has allowed us to expose their contents on the Web of Data.

Price depends on the popularity of the channel, time the commercial is being aired, number of viewers and length of the commercial. Placing a commercial on local channels is more affordable than on national channel where the cost is almost double.when it comes to choice BBC is way ahead,

So to have a television in the UK, a household has to pay around £140 per year - that’s 400 Reais.

  • Lord Reith “inform, educate and entertain” http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/features/the-reith-lectures/about/ Monday, 23 November 2009 The BBC is one of the oldest broadcasters in the world. It was formed in the 1920s, and the first Director General Lord Reith was the one who summarised the BBC’s purpose as to “inform, educate and entertain”

  • Historically, when it came to promoting our programmes online... Monday, 23 November 2009 For the BBC, programmes are one of our core assets. One of the main things we publish online are websites for our programmes, and we’ve been doing this for a while now. All the TV stations and radio networks have websites, and the major TV shows also have sites. But historically, when it came to promote our programmes online...

The cost of creating them significant as they were all hand built.
  • Only some programmes could be covered ...which is a shame because we broadcast between 1,000 and 1,500 programmes a day flickr.com/photos/jamescridland/18768141/ Monday, 23 November 2009 And this meant that only some programmes had any kind of web presence, and the commissioning of those was uneven. Often the support sites weren’t comprehensive, as they didn’t provide a complete record of a programme, such as details on each episode.
  • Developed in isolation flickr.com/photos/bottleleaf/2218990208 Monday, 23 November 2009 These sites were commissioned and developed in isolation. So you could see an Archers site, and an Eastenders site and a Top Gear site which were internally coherent, but they failed to link up to each other except by editorially determined cross promotions. You could see who presented Top Gear, but you couldn’t see the other programmes they presented.

  • Cost Expenditure Opportunity Monday, 23 November 2009 The main problem in doing things in this way is cost. It’s really inefficient and expensive to build lots and lots of hand cranked sites. And it's expensive both in terms of actual expenditure (i.e. the number of people doing it) and in terms of opportunity costs (if you send all your time cranking out html files for Eastenders then you can't do more interesting things).
  • New Platforms • Broadcast • Desktop • Mobile • Games consoles • ... Monday, 23 November 2009 We also need to be able to react to new platforms - people are consuming content in different ways. In addition to regular broadcasting, more and more people are using their desktop, mobile or games consoles to consume our content. The old way of doing things didn't scale very well - whenever we went to support a new platform you’d need another team.

  • Size and Organisation flickr.com/photos/pagedooley/1875348372/ Monday, 23 November 2009 And this implied a number of challenges. It's really difficult to provide a unified approach when you publish as much content as we do. It's difficult from a political, cultural and technical points of views. The BBC is a huge organisation, and over the years has grown in an organic way, resulting in various departments and systems.
  • Different Systems • Orpheus • Proteus • Information & Archives • PIPS • DVB • Web Monday, 23 November 2009 There’s the problem that different data and identifiers are used to describe the same thing in different systems. There are also different workflows, and data is generated for different purposes. For example, some back office systems and certain data used in play out systems was never intended to be seen by the audience. The quality of information capture varies between departments, in systems, and also over time. For example, certain fields might be used in a way they weren’t intended to as people find work arounds so they can store data in a way that matches their needs.
  • Broadcast systems integration • Duplicate data entry: • Billings • Rights • News • Online Monday, 23 November 2009 So a lot of work has gone into broadcast systems integration: we wanted to explore how to automate some of the process. To publish programme information on our websites, we needed to capture the metadata naturally produced in the production process and expose it online. Another thing we’re facing is reducing the amount of duplicate data entry work for our editorial staff.

GENRES FORMATS Children's Animation Comedy Appeals http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/radiolabs/2009/01/how_we_make_websites.shtml Drama Bulletins Monday, 23 November 2009 When it came to design the actual public-facing website, we turned to Domain Driven Design. The experience of designing and building /programmes led Michael Smethurst, an information architect at the BBC, to define a domain driven approach for building web sites. The next few slides are based on a blog post, titled “How we make websites” by Michael, and I definitely recommend everyone to read them!
  • Explore the Domain Monday, 23 November 2009 The first thing step is to explore the domain, by sitting down with a domain expert and modelling the real objects you want to deal with. This should be clear from the business requirements - it might be food or music or gardening or... Employ a domain expert. Get them to sketch their world and sketch back at them. Concentrate on modelling real (physical and metaphysical) things not web pages - try to blank from your mind all thoughts of the resulting web site. This work should never stop - you need to do this through the lifetime of the project as you refine your understanding.
  • Identify your domain objects and the relationships between them Monday, 23 November 2009 By talking to the domain expert, you should build up a picture of the things they’re concerned with, and how these things interlink. As you chat and sketch with your domain expert you should build up a picture of the types of things they're concerned with. Make a list of these objects. As your knowledge of the domain increases you'll build up a picture of how your objects interlink. You can sketch basic entity relationship diagrams with your domain expert and keep sketching until the picture clears. Bear in mind you're trying to capture the domain ontology - this isn't about sketching database schemas. The resulting domain model will inform the rest of your project and should be one of the few artifacts your project ever creates.
  • Check your domain model with users Monday, 23 November 2009 Then run focus groups and speak to users, getting them to sketch their understanding of the domain so that their view can be synthesised with the expert’s model. Run focus groups and speak to users. Get them to sketch their understanding of the domain and again sketch back at them. After several round trips you should be able to synthesise the expert model and the user model. User-centric design starts here - if you choose to model things and relationships between those things that users can't easily comprehend no amount of wireframes or personaes or storyboards will help you out.
  • Check to see if your website already deals with some of your domain objects Monday, 23 November 2009 Check whether your website already deals with any of the domain objects - having more than one page about a given thing confuses both users and search engines. So wherever there was existing content you can use, link to that instead of making a new page for it. If it does then reuse this functionality by linking to these pages - you don't want to mint new URIs for existing objects. Having more than one page per thing confuses users and confuses Google. Try to think of your website as a coherent whole; not as a collection of individual products. And as ever, don't expose your internal organisational structures through your website. Users don't care about departments or reporting lines. The glory will always come from building skyscrapers - the real challenge lies in decent town planning. It's more difficult to build new services that stitch into your site and stitch into the web than build shiny, shrink wrapped, self contained products.
  • Source your data Monday, 23 November 2009 Sourcing the data is vital, and it’s worth looking for external as well as internal sources of metadata. In particular it’s important to use sources that offer their data under a liberal licensing agreement so that it can be used in as many ways as possible. For example, for us it’s important that our data can be exposed through an API for other developers to build upon it. Check if there are business systems in your organisation able to populate your schema. Check if there are existing websites outside your organisation you can use to populate your schema. Give preferential treatment to any websites that offer their data under a liberal licencing agreement - you can buy in data to help you slice and dice your own data but if you do this you might not be able to provide an open data API without giving away the 3rd party's business model. If your organisation AND an open data website can provide the data, consider the danger in minting new identifiers for your own data - can you easily link out / can you easily get links in? Data licensing is one of those areas that often gets ignored in project planning. If you fail to consider it or get it wrong it can severely curtail your plans further down the line.
  • Design your database Monday, 23 November 2009 The next step is to translate the domain model into a physical database schema.
  • Pipe in your data Monday, 23 November 2009 Then work out how to populate the database with the source data. In our case, we are using PIPS, the Programme Information Platform. It’s an aggregation of all of the programme metadata from the different departments and divisions from the BBC. The bulk of the data is about schedule information: when programmes are broadcast. On top of that we provide internal tools for editorial staff to annotate and add more information about the programmes. Whether you choose to use your business data or buy data or use open data you'll need a way of piping it into your database schema. You'll probably have to reshape it to make it suitable for publishing.
  • Make your models Monday, 23 November 2009 When using a Model View Controller framework for building the site, the next step is to start implementing the models that contain all of the business logic to cover the domain. In an MVC framework your models should contain all your business logic. This mean they should capture all the constraints of your database schema plus all the extra constraints implied by your domain model.
  • Design your URI schema Monday, 23 November 2009 Then design the URI schema from the domain model. In our department we tend to use large walls and lots of Post-its! One of the things we try to ensure is that everything we expose on the site is addressable with it’s own URI. And this isn’t just the primary resources like an episode, but also the features of an episode, like the credits, or when that programme was broadcast. And then we “transclude” those resources back onto the episode page. This let’s you control the user experience: You can display the full list of credits on an episode page. Or link to them instead. Or display the most important credits (e.g. director, main stars of the show) on the episode page and then link to the list of full credits. This is really helpful for certain platforms, like mobile, as it allows you to reduce the load of the main page. Your URI schema should follow naturally from your domain model. As an example if you're dealing with books and a book can have many authors then ../:book/authors should list all the authors of that book. At Audio and Music we tend to use large walls and lots of post-its to design our URIs. Add some string to show links and journeys and there's no need to ever draw another site map. This isn't just about designing URIs for resources you link to - sometimes your pages will be made up of other transcluded resources - all of these subsidiary resources should be addressable too. It means you can easily change your user experience layer by taking out transcluded resources and linking to them instead or removing links and transcluding. By making every nugget of content addressable you allow other sites to link to it, improve your bookmarkability and increase your SEO - cf. an individual 'tweet'. Bear in mind that some representations (specifically mobile) will need smaller, more fragmented representations with lower page weight - designing your subsidiary resources to be addressable allows you to easily deal with this requirement - transclude the content on a desktop machine, link to it on a mobile. This is where we begin to talk about one web and REST. Each thing should be one resource with one URI - the representation you get back (whether desktop HTML or mobile XHTML MP or RDF or YAML or JSON) should depend on what your user agent asks for via content negotiation. It means I can send a link to a friend from a desktop machine, they can click on that link from a mobile and they'll get back a representation appropriate to their device. Or vice versa. One web with no mobile ghetto. It's important not to confuse URI design with site structure and user journeys. If you're used to working on hierarchical silo sites then the URI structure often determines the navigation. This isn't true here. Think of the individual resources as tent poles - the user journeys are the canvas
  • Make hello world pages for your primary domain objects Monday, 23 November 2009 And then we start writing some views, step one is simply an h1 with the title of the object.
  • Make hello world pages for your primary aggregations Monday, 23 November 2009 And the same for aggregations, like listing all programmes in a particular format such as Drama.
  • Define the data you need to build each of your pages Monday, 23 November 2009 Then define what data is needed for each resource. It’s important to think about the data you want exposed, independently of the different representations. We believe in One Web principle, and REST, that is: each thing should be one resource with one URI. The representation you get back (whether desktop HTML or mobile or XML or RDF or JSON) should depend on what your user agent asks for via content negotiation. This means I can send a link to a friend from a desktop machine, they can click on that link from a mobile and they'll get back a representation appropriate to their device. Or vice versa. So at this point we define the data needed to build all representations of the thing - just because the HTML representation doesn’t need to show the updated at date doesn’t mean the RSS or Atom or RDF don’t need it. Traditional wireframes lump together data requirements (via annotations), page layout and (by implication) document design. It's best to split these out into 3 distinct tasks. The first task is to define the data requirements. For each URI define the data needed to build all representations of the thing. Just because the HTML representation doesn't need to show the updated date doesn't mean the RSS or Atom or RDF don't need it. Some resources will transclude others. There's no need to define the data required for these - just reference the transcluded resource.
  • Build up your HTML pages and other representations Monday, 23 November 2009 Now we knew what data was needed, you can start surfacing it in the representations. For the HTML, you should design the documents to be semantically correct and accessible and not worry about page layout - that’s the job of CSS, not markup. Now you know what data you need you can begin to surface this in your representations. If you're working in HTML make sure you design your document to be semantically correct and accessible. Try not to think about page layout - that's the job of CSS not markup. Document design should be independent of page layout. In general your page should be structured into title, content, navigation - screen readers don't want to fight through calendar tables etc to get to the content.
  • Apply layout CSS Monday, 23 November 2009 At this point add layout CSS to the HTML pages, experimenting with different layouts for the markup by moving elements around the page. It’s wireframing, but on the actual site with real data!
  • Add caching and search sitemaps Monday, 23 November 2009 It’s worth spending some time considering caching: cache for too long and pages go stale, but don’t cache enough and you risk placing unnecessary strain on your application. Search sitemaps are important to ensure search engines can find the bits of the site that have been updated, so they can re-index your site more effectively and so your content more findable. Knowing what can be cached and for how long is a vital part of designing your user experience. Cache for too long and pages go stale. Don't cache for long enough and you send unnecessary traffic across the wires and place extra strain on your application. Cached pages will also be faster and smoother to render in a browser. And if your users are paying for data on a mobile every extra connection means bigger bills, which is definitely a user experience issue. An example: if you're creating a schedule page for today's TV you want to cache for performance reasons but you don't want to cache it for too long since schedules are subject to change. But you can cache yesterday's schedule more aggressively and last week's schedule more aggressively still. Creating XML search sitemaps helps search engines know which bits of your site have been updated. Which helps them to know which bits to re-index. Which helps to make your content more findable.
  • Test and iterate Monday, 23 November 2009 You should be testing with real users at every stage of development but it's particularly important to conduct usability AND accessibility tests now. It's like testing traditional wireframes but you're testing on the real application with real application behaviours and real data (no lorum ipsum nonsense). Sometimes the results of testing will require changes to layout CSS, sometimes to markup, sometimes to the data you need to surface and sometimes to the underlying domain / data model. You should be testing with real users at every stage of development but it's particularly important to conduct usability AND accessibility tests now. It's like testing traditional wireframes but you're testing on the real application with real application behaviours and real data (no lorum ipsum nonsense). Sometimes the results of your testing will require changes to layout CSS, sometimes to markup, sometimes to the data you need to surface and sometimes to the underlying domain / data model. Bear in mind if you're using data from existing business systems there may need to be heavy investment to make changes to that data model and employ the staff to admin those changes. Occasionally it might even mean renegotiating contracts with outside data providers. All design and usability issues are fixable - some just need more lawyers than others : )
  • Apply decor CSS Monday, 23 November 2009 At this point it’s time to add visual design and branding. Over the top of your wireframe application you can now start to add visual design and branding. This is exactly the same process as taking a paper wireframe and applying design treatments over the top except you're mainly working in CSS. Experiment with different treatments - see how far you can stretch the design with the markup given. Sometimes you'll need to add additional markup to hook your CSS off. Now's the time to add background imagery for headers, dividers, buttons, list items etc so best to open Photoshop / Illustrator to make your design assets.
  • And test and iterate Monday, 23 November 2009 And then test the visual design and branding - never stop testing! Never stop testing. Remember that personas are just abstractions of people - it's always better to use real people. Ideally you should be able to adjust your code / markup / CSS to respond to user requests. If you can afford the recruitment / developer time there's no better way to test than with a user sitting alongside a developer - the developer can react to user requests, tweak the application and gain instant feedback without the ambiguity that sometimes comes from test reports. Again you should accessibility test - some of the design / decor changes may affect font sizes etc - make sure your users can still read the page.
  • Add any JavaScript / AJAX Monday, 23 November 2009 At this point you can start adding more interactive elements using Javascript/ajax. By having each resource addressable and providing them in machine readable representations like XML or JSON, this step should be relatively trivial. By making the browsable site first and adding in javascript over the top you have a better chance of making an accessible web site that degrades gracefully. And because search engines bots are your least able users, sites that degrade well for accessbility also degrade well for search engines. By designing your browsable site first and adding in Javascript / AJAX over the top you stand a better chance of making an accessible web site - one that degrades gracefully. As ever Google et al are your least able users - search bots don't like forms or JavaScript - sites that degrade well for accessibility also degrade well for search engines. Making every subsidiary resource addressable and providing these resources serialised as XML or JSON makes adding AJAX relatively trivial. You'll probably need to tweak your CSS to adjust to life with JavaScript / AJAX.
  • And test and iterate Monday, 23 November 2009 Again test your site for accessibility and usability with JavaScript turned on and off.
  • Continue... Monday, 23 November 2009 And continue building the site in this way, following the same steps for each development cycle. Follow the same steps for each development cycle. Some development cycles will just be about surfacing new views of the existing domain model; some will require expanding your domain model. Now you know your domain model and have made each domain object addressable layering over new views and more subtle user journeys should be trivial. And keep testing!

The reason for this is that our goal is for persistent URIs: we want to avoid breaking links, bookmarks, citations, and it also helps with SEO. Cool URIs don’t change! There are plenty of issues with using a human readable URLs for programmes. There might be 2 programmes with the same name - do you mean the Wire, a creative writing programme on Radio 4 or the Wire, the hit US TV show? OK, so you can use the service to disambiguate, but what happens when a programme changes service? Little Britian started as a Radio 4 comedy show, then became a TV show on BBC Three and when it became popular switched across to BBC One. Programmes can change name - Gilles Peterson’s show on Radio 1 was called worldwide with Gilles Peterson, but recently because of how Radio 1 are branding their shows it’s now just Gilles Peterson. And what about individual episodes? Do you use a number? Does it increment naturally? How do you cope with pilots, or special features? Or if you use broadcast dates, what about when something is rebroadcast, is it still at the same URL? So using an opaque identifier saves a lot of trouble at this point! It's nice if URIs are human readable. It's also nice if they're hackable. It's an absolute prerequisite that they're persistent. Don't sacrifice persistence for the sake of prettiness or misguided SEO. URIs are your promise to the web and your users - if you change them or change their meaning you break that promise - links break, bookmarks break, citations break and your search engine juice is lost. Remember: Cool URIs don't change. http://www.plasticbag.org/archives/2004/06/developing_a_url_structure_for_broadcast_radio_sites

  • Web scale identifiers* 10000730-525f-4ed5-aaa8-92888f060f5f musicbrainz.org/artist/:guid bbc.co.uk/music/artists/:guid * http://bit.ly/ytB6d Monday, 23 November 2009 A curious feature of MusicBrainz is their use of these rather long, opaque identifiers for their resources For example, an artist page in musicbrainz is musicbrainz.org/artist/:guid And we’re reusing these identifiers on our site, so the artist profile on BBC is: www.bbc.co.uk/music/ artists/:guid Again, Michael Smethurst has written a really good blog post about this, where he calls this “Web scale identifiers” And this reuse makes it really easy to build mashups and join this data with other sources on the web - you just take an artist ID and query other applications using MusicBrainz like last.fm.
  • Music Artist profile - bbc.co.uk/music/artists/:guid Monday, 23 November 2009 Taking an artist profile like Madonna
  • Music Artist profile - data from MusicBrainz Monday, 23 November 2009 The discography, artist and label relatiotionships and links come from MusicBrainz
  • Music Artist profile - biography extract from Wikipedia Monday, 23 November 2009 If an artist’s profile in MusicBrainz has been given a Wikipedia link, we are able to fetch the article abstract from Wikipedia. Using a pretty popular pubsub mechanism (involving IRC!) we keep the abstract up to date in realtime - an edit in Wikipedia will appear on BBC Music in a few seconds.
  • The Web as a Content Management System BBC editorial staff are contributing to MusicBrainz and Wikipedia instead of internal systems Monday, 23 November 2009 So when we say that we are using the web as a content management system, we mean that BBC staff are editing MusicBrainz and Wikipedia instead of an internal tool These guys are domain experts: their job is to research and publish all sorts of things about music. (even if they’re a bit obsessed by jazz). They are in a position where they can make some really valuable expert contributions to the MusicBrainz and Wikipedia projects
  • Scale 455,465 artists 682,473 releases 7,851,093 tracks 31,112 labels Monday, 23 November 2009 And because these are open data sets powered by their communities on the web, we are able to publish many more artist pages than would otherwise be possible! We’re now publishing over 450,000 artist profiles! We are able to support a wider diversity of music, much more than if we were to maintain our own data source!

  • Credit the source Monday, 23 November 2009 We credit our sources so it’s clear to our users where the data is coming from. As we only publish the abstract users go over to wikipedia if they want to know more
  • Encourage users to contribute Monday, 23 November 2009 More importantly, we encourage our users to get involved and contribute to the datasets themselves. For example, the band “Harmonica Fats” hasn’t been given a Wikipedia URL so we can’t pull in a biography. We ask our users if they know a Wikipedia article exists to add it to MusicBrainz And as the site becomes established, some of these users might be the record labels, music promoters or even band members themselves.

This really simple approach is pretty accurate as it is based on the link information added by our editorial staff We’re also doing this for all of the BBC Blogs too (DJs, shows, Chart Show). before, editors were tagging individual stories to artists news journalists linking to music pages - not joined up, pages gets stale now they simply add links to MusicBrainz, and journalists are encouraged to link to artists - improving the web We’re also encouraging them to link directly to our artist profile pages, which will improve our ranking in the search engine rankings Also links to artist resources can be messy (index.php, bad myspace, bad homepage), so linking to the artist profile will be more stable (links are maintained by the community in MusicBrainz)

In the past, you’d sit down in front of the TV and watch an hour long wild life documentary. This doesn't work so well on the web - people are used to making their own journeys, and watching smaller length clips. But on the /nature site, we’re letting users make their own documentary - they can start on an animal, watch a clip, follow a link to another related animal, read about that animal and so on... And to be able to do that across of the whole of the BBC, across all of the domains we cover, is going to be fantastic!

We could have tried to build a big central web team to build everything but the communication overhead, if nothing else, would have been terrible! The Linked Data approach means everyone can focus on their thing with relatively little overhead.

  • Linked Data richard.cyganiak.de/2007/10/lod Monday, 23 November 2009 At the same time we were building /programmes and /music, the Linked Data initiative was taking off. Linked Data is a method of exposing, sharing, and connecting data via dereferenceable URIs on the Web. The Linked Data cloud, shown here, is a visualisation of all of the datasets available in this format, and shows how they link together.
  • Linked Data Principles 1. Use URIs as names for things 2. Use HTTP URIs so that people can look up those names. 3. When someone looks up a URI, provide useful information, using the standards (RDF, SPARQL) 4. Include links to other URIs. so that they can discover more things. Monday, 23 November 2009 The principles of Linked Data are: 1) Use URIs to name things. Any resource you want to talk about: programmes, people, places, programming languages, proteins - it gets a URI. 2) Use HTTP URIs so that people can look up those names. And this is important, because... 3) Principle 3 is when someone looks up a URI, provide useful information So whenever there’s a URI for a resource you want to know more about, you can use HTTP to fetch data about that resource. 4) Include links to other URIs, so that they can discover more things And this is what makes linked data so powerful, as you can start using links to traverse across different datasets.
  • RDF Resource Description Framework Monday, 23 November 2009 Linked Data uses RDF, the resource description framework, to model data. So when you want to fetch some information about a resource, it is returned in RDF.
  • RDF subject - predicate - object Monday, 23 November 2009 With RDF, you make statements about resources using subject-predicate-object expressions. * For example, if you want to say that “Coldplay is the artist of the album Viva la Vida”. * The subject is “Coldplay”, the predicate is “is the artist of”, and the “object” is “Viva la vida”. And in RDF we’re using URIs. * So there’s a URI for Coldplay And a URI for Viva la vida. And here is the URI for the property indicating the artist for an album.
  • RDF subject - predicate - object Coldplay is the artist of Viva la Vida Monday, 23 November 2009 With RDF, you make statements about resources using subject-predicate-object expressions. * For example, if you want to say that “Coldplay is the artist of the album Viva la Vida”. * The subject is “Coldplay”, the predicate is “is the artist of”, and the “object” is “Viva la vida”. And in RDF we’re using URIs. * So there’s a URI for Coldplay And a URI for Viva la vida. And here is the URI for the property indicating the artist for an album.

When someone looks up a URI, provide useful information, using the standards (RDF, SPARQL) 4. Include links to other URIs. so that they can discover more things. Monday, 23 November 2009 So we found that we were already doing most of this! We were using URIs to name objects, and using HTTP URIs to return interesting information about those objects. We then looked into publishing RDF about our content.
  • Programmes Ontology http://purl.org/ontology/po/ Monday, 23 November 2009 For programmes, we decided to develop our own ontology to describe the domain of programmes. This was based on our domain model and database schema that was driving the / programmes site.

  • Linked Data Principles ✔ 1. Use URIs as names for things ✔ 2. Use HTTP URIs so that people can look up those names. ✔ 3. When someone looks up a URI, provide useful information, using the standards (RDF, SPARQL) ✔ 4. Include links to other URIs. so that they can discover more things. Monday, 23 November 2009 So we were publishing RDF, and became part of the Linked Data cloud. The thing to highlight, is that if you’ve built your site the right way then exposing Linked Data is actually pretty simple - it’s a tiny amount of effort compared to the remainder of the work.
  • SPARQL Endpoints • Talis http://api.talis.com/stores/bbc-backstage • OpenLink http://bbc.openlinksw.com/sparql http://welcomebackstage.com/2009/06/bbc-backstage-sparql-endpoint/ Monday, 23 November 2009 SPARQL is the query language for RDF. Because we’re still publishing our RDF from a relational database and a normal MVC framework, we’re unable to expose our data over SPARQL. So we got a couple of companies, Talis and Openlink, to crawl our RDF data and store it in a native triple store that could expose a SPARQL end point. You can find these SPARQL endpoints here, and read more about the announcement here.
