  • great set of slides (18-21) on the growth of the data web - and I like the linkages between open data, linked data, policy, and other topics

  • Hi John,

    I don't want to replace the Keynote file on here with a PDF as I have found PDFs on Slideshare don't always come out right (can't find an option to add an additional format). However, if you email me I will email you a link to download in whatever format you wish (PDF/PPT etc). My contact details are on the first slide of the presentation.

    If you want to re-use that's fine as the slides are CC-BY, but please remember to attribute.

    Thanks,

    Chris

  • Great slides! But your .key (aka Keynote) downloadable version is not very usable on Ubuntu machines (not to mention Windoze). Can you provide a PDF version for us non-Mac heads?

  • Introduce Talis
    Aim to introduce topics around the semantic web and paint picture of how these relate to education and libraries
    3 parts
  • In any industry, technology comes waves

    Waves can be very disruptive

    Publishing - paper to printing press, typesetting to desktop publishing, hardcopy to webcopy

    Evolution not revolution because adoption happens over a period of years

  • See the waves - PC - Web 1, Web 2....
  • Innovation polarised around y2k

    Geoffrey Moore’s (author of Crossing the Chasm) theory

    2 distinct waves of investment

  • enterprise
    database
    systems of record - transactions
    CRM, ERP, electronic payments: acronyms
    Oracle, IBM, SAP

    Pre-2000: Innovation was in enabling transactions: systems of record. Key market: the enterprise. Key technologies: the database, fat client-local server. Key companies: Oracle, IBM, SAP

  • Familiar examples from within the institution

    These are done - small improvements but as systems of record and focus on transactions

    Focus inside the firewall
  • data silos - interoperability is pre-orchestrated or planned.
  • Specs, formal agreements, use cases upfront, software engineers required. Very fragile.
  • Post-2000: Innovation is in enabling relationships and interactions.

    Key market: personal.
    Key companies: Google, Facebook, Twitter

    The web is very good at this
  • All of this is happening in the cloud outside the firewall

    Integration is mashups and open APIs and protocols - not pre-orchestrated. Use cases not defined upfront.
  • driven by convergence of mobile devices, and cloud services that interoperate
  • Technologies on the left: transactions and records. Characterised by pre-orchestrated integration - specs, party agreements, proprietary protocols.

    On the right: interactions and relationships. Characterised by informal integration - multiple players, no contracts, open protocols
  • Part of the web 3 wave
    Disruption is making web data centric not document centric

    Next wave
  • Allowed integration of documents to be informal and not pre-orchestrated.
    Imagine if TimBL had enforced backlinks!
    Open participation, protocols & specifications
  • Informal integration led to an explosion in connections between documents.
    Technology enabling connections between documents.
  • You don’t need to know the use case upfront. Integration of documents doesn’t require software engineers or formal specifications and agreement.

    Designed for re-use.

    This leads to freedom and people appropriating technology to do useful things
  • Linked data is about publishing data in an agreed way, making it possible to create relationships between datasets.
    Connecting up the databases and find new relationships.
    Making this simple to do with open standards, existing protocols - anyone can join in. Lowering barriers to entry making it feasible to link out to data you don’t control, in a global context, for the first time.


  • Explain diagram

    Evolution - Linked Data is still only a toddler
  • Early startups getting involved here - Garlik with QDOS
  • BBC getting involved here. People starting to “wrap” social networks.
  • Growing up quickly - now too big to draw.
  • National Library of Sweden

    This is what humans see
  • This is what mashups will use
  • wildlife finder

  • linking out to other datasets and locations on the web
  • If link data is a technology... Open Data is a movement

    UK Government "Making Public Data Public" initiative

    Gov recruited TBL and Prof. Nigel Shadbolt
  • Always more smart people outside google than inside
    True whatever the organisation
    what happens when organisations open their data
    Some examples from data.gov.uk...


  • data.gov.uk newspaper

  • UK government executive agency, set up from 1999 to act as a commercial entity.

    Months of public consultation, part of a wider government public data policy. Free Our Data campaign lead by Charles Arthur @ Guardian. OS OpenData set up as a result and launched 1st April 2010.

    Free use for public and commercial with attribution (compatible with CC-BY).

    Challenging concept of data ownership lead to a policy and licensing change which made this possible.
  • However... all this growth only just starting to transition from the hobbiest data publisher. Organisations only now starting to take note. Just like web 1.0. We’re back in early 90’s.


  • All the technologies to do linked data have existed for 10-15 years, or even longer - HTTP, cloud architecture, even RDF - but only now is the mind shift gaining traction


  • Part of the web 3 wave
    Disruption is making web data centric not document centric


  • Facebook est. 2003, mainstream only when your mum starts to use it.
    Technology all there to implement before 2000, but the right social norms need to be in place for it to become mainstream.


  • for me this is where the real innovation in education is happening today

  • movement enabled by the internet. Increasing use of mobile devices.

    next: innovations build on top of these initiatives
  • p2p uni

    self organising over open content

    in 2nd cycle
  • open text books - free to view, educators can customise, pay to print

  • our own offering helping people unlock and discover resource list content

    price incentive for those that do this with open data

  • synergies with open data movement
    just like data.gov.uk


  • in summary:

    innovation is in relationships and interactions, not records
    linked data is the architecture for open data on the web
    innovation in education is about quality joined up relationships




  • How will you embrace this new wave?

    What data can you open up?
    What innovations might this enable?
    Who is going to be the first open data university?
