I’m a french PhD Student in Computing. I’m interested in Social Software, Collaborative work and Semantic Web (especially when they interact), and in data mash-up and open APIs (eg: http://foafmap.net a FOAF and Google Maps mashup). I maintain a weblog for almost a year, dealing with these aspects.
I’ll attend BlogTalk as a co-writter of “SIOC Browser: Towards a Richer Blog Browsing Experience” co-written with Uldis Bojars and JohnBreslin and will also present the paper “Folksonomies, Ontologies and Corporate Blogging”, co-written with Philippe Laublet and Jean-David Sta. I hope these two talks, and the SIOC Experiment, will show people what Semantic Web can offer them.
I should arrive in Vienna on Sunday afternoon, and leave on tuesday evening. Of course, I’ll be interested in meeting people with similar interests.
