Tim Berners-Lee on Linked Data at TED

Posted by Knud on March 16th, 2009

Tim Berners-Lee1 gave an enthusiastic talk about linked data at TED, urging everybody to get their data out there or, if they don’t have any, to demand access to data in a proper format.

Interestingly, he didn’t mention the words “Semantic Web” once during the talk, nor did he ever say “RDF” or even “URI” – instead he spoke about “names starting with ‘http’”. Cool enough, his slides had the dog food data set in them! :)

A video of the talk and a link to the slides can be found on the ebiquity blog.
