The slides I presented at the IKS Workshop are now on slideshare (font messed up a bit, I'll have a go at uploading a pdf version later) and at slides.odp. Probably more useful for a skim are the preparatory notes. I think my main quasi-novel point was that historically the (Semantic) Web could be said to have been through three phases:
1. "It's all about the docs"
the traditional Document Web, with a bit of metadata
2. "No, it's all about the things"
the upper-case Semantic Web, reaching a zenith with Linked Data
3. "Ok, maybe the docs are important after all"
the current phase, not docs exor data but a synthesis of what's gone before - all the Linked Data goodness, what we've learnt about REST, with Web APIs and a variety of media types (like JSON plus JSON-LD), all the smarter CMS stuff with natural language processing bits, the search stuff, bringing in RDFa/microdata/microformats, all together with some gentle relaxation of constraints (think schema.org) - and gaining truly mainstream adoption
Apologies to anyone in Salzburg that followed the link I gave in the slides, I'd totally forgotten that the service there was broken. Just spent this morning setting up a live instance of Seki on hyperdata.org to fix that. Well, kinda live, all it's actually doing now is serving up a handful of static pages and giving the crawlers a 404. There are quite a few things I need to fix up - some thought needed around config and most of all I need to get some auth in place, like yesterday. But having it live is pretty good motivation to get things fixed up.
