    I had the privilege of attending the annual South by South-west Interactive, Film and Music conference (SXSW) a few weeks ago in Austin, Texas.    I was there as part of the ‘Radically Open Cultural Heritage Data on the Web’ Interactive panel session, along with our fellow LODLAMers, Jon Voss, Julie Allinson from the University of York digital library, and Rachel Frick from the Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR). We were well chuffed that Mashable.com picked up on it as one of ’22 SXSW Panels You Can’t Up This Year’. I’ve written about our session and a few of the other sessions over the UK Discovery blog for those who wanting the full lowdown.

    A few weeks ago, myself and Jon Voss had the pleasure of speaking at the ‘Libraries, Media & The Semantic Web’ event hosted by the BBC Academy, along with folks from the New York Times, the BBC, Google in the guise of Schema.org, and KONA. The event was organised by the Lotico London Semantic Web Group. I’ve written a fairly comprehensive post about the event over on the Linking Lives blog, including videos of all the talks, for those who want to read/hear more.

    Report on the LOD-LAM Summit at ‘Linked Data and Libraries 2011′

    Earlier today I gave a short report on the LOD-LAM Summit at the Talis ‘Linked Data and Libraries 2011‘ event held at the British Library in London. I’ve embedded the slides here: Report on the International Linked Open Data for Libraries, Archives and Museums Summit View more presentations from Adrian Stevenson There’s quite a few photos from the event in the slides, as well as some from the Internet Archive visit on the last slide. I drew attention to the breakout group notes on the Pirate Pad as the place to go to find out more, as well as the Summit blog of course. There was clearly interest in the #lodlam London event (#lodlamlon ?) that Mia Ridge and myself have been talking about. Mia has taken the lead on pulling this together via the meet-up page. I also noted that Antoine Isaac was suggesting the possibility that the #lodlam community may be able to pick up the W3C Library Linked Data Incubator Group activities that are about to finish soon. There’s a write up of my report and the other talks from the event on Owen Stephen’s ‘Overdue Ideas‘ blog. Cheers, Ade
