Interest in LODLAM

I am interested in discussing how Libraries and Museums can continue the exciting progress they have made in recent years in LOD projects. I am interested in Libraries and Museums as models of Knowledge Representation and Organization for other large application areas. I am also interested in the intersection of LOD and other technologies such as assistive technologies.

Linked Open Data Projects

I haven't worked on Linked Open Data projects in the Library or Museum arena specifically, but have been involved in LOD projects and regularly give presentations about Semantic Technology topics.
