  • There’s plenty to oppose in the Digital Economy Bill, it gives the government the ability to disconnect millions. Schools, libraries and businesses could see their connection cut if their pupils, readers of customers infringe any copyright. But one group likes it, the music industry. In a leaked memo a few days ago they admitted the only way to get the bill through would be to rush it through without a real parliamentary debate. Let’s stop that happening.
  • De pensioenberekening verschilt naargelang het pensioenstelsel.
  • Turtle (Terse RDF Triple Language) is a serialisation format for RDF (Resource Description Framework) graphs.
  • FOAF (an acronym of Friend of a friend) is a machine-readable ontology describing persons, their activities and their relations to other people and objects. Anyone can use FOAF to describe him or herself. FOAF allows groups of people to describe social networks without the need for a centralised database.

    The FOAF project, which defines and extends the vocabulary of a FOAF profile, was started in 2000 by Libby Miller and Dan Brickley. It can be considered the first Social Semantic Web application, in that it combines RDF technology with 'Social Web' concerns.

    Tim Berners-Lee in a 2007 essay [3] redefined the Semantic web concept into something he calls the Giant Global Graph, where relationships transcend networks/documents. He considers the GGG to be on equal grounds with Internet and World Wide Web, stating that "I express my network in a FOAF file, and that is a start of the revolution."

  • SPARQL (pronounced "sparkle"[1] ) is an RDF query language; its name is a recursive acronym that stands for SPARQL Protocol and RDF Query Language. It was standardized by the RDF Data Access Working Group (DAWG) of the World Wide Web Consortium, and is considered a key semantic web technology. On 15 January 2008, SPARQL became an official W3C Recommendation. [2]
  • We proudly announce that Belgium will host Droidcon for the first time on April 2nd at Living Tomorrow Brussels.

    We will bring together the most enthusiastic Android developers, influencers and business people to discuss the latest topics and trends on the mobile platform. Professionals will share with you their most in depth knowledge and developments in new business models for the mobile world. The presentations will be interactive so feel free to share your thougts and ask questions. Major tracks will take 20 minutes, normal tracks 10 minutes. Keynotes get a tailor made time slot.

    The list of speakers will soon be available. But we are still looking for the most exciting projects and research being done in Android and on the mobile platform in general! We are interested in innovative applications and hardware, all related to mobile web. Tracks can be brought from a development, business or marketing angle.

  • Hey everybody, the album leaked, and we wanted you to be able to hear it from us. We wanted to offer it as a free download but that didn't make sense to anyone but us.
  • Nederland telt ongeveer 1,5 miljoen laaggeletterden: mensen die grote moeite hebben met lezen en schrijven. Doordat ze niet goed in staat zijn gedrukte of geschreven informatie te gebruiken, worden ze beperkt in hun functioneren thuis, op het werk en in de samenleving. Een voorbeeld hiervan is de communicatie met de overheidsorganisaties. De meeste websites houden nog maar weinig rekening met laaggeletterdheid. De grote vraag is: hoe moet je ermee omgaan?
  • I was about to protest, "Dammit Jim, I'm a programmer, not a marketer!"

    But that would be a lie. In this new open-source/cluetrain world, I am a marketer. And so are you. If you're interested in creating passionate users, or keeping your job, or breathing life into a startup, or getting others to contribute to your open source project, or getting your significant other to agree to the vacation you want to go on… congratulations. You're in marketing. Now go kill yourself.

    The word "marketing" (and by extension, "marketers") has a bad rep for sure, as does "advertising" and "PR". But they all share a common goal–connecting buyers and sellers. Isn't that what we're doing?

  • UX is really just good marketing. Good marketers actually do a lot of what UX people do and vice-versa. It’s mostly a difference in terminology…any good marketing professional would tell you that knowing who your users are has long been recognized as good business.
  • A fully automated, active web application security reconnaissance tool.
  • Filip Dewinter en zijn kompanen zoeken vanalles op over zichzelf en komen daarop uit. En ze dienen klacht in. En twee rappers zien plots hoe hun karamellenverzen in de rechtbank besproken worden. Dikke shit.

    Dat bestond in onze tijd gelukkig niet, die YouTube-miserie. We maakten toen ook nummers over allerlei rommel, maar wie ze wou horen moest eerst de plaat, cd of tape kopen en dat zorgde voor een eerste drempel. Extreem Rechts kan toch onmogelijk alle releases van alle prulgroepjes gaan kopen om ze door te lichten, of wel?

    Anders hadden ze wellicht veel plezier gehad aan dit grappig bedoelde nummer van cultsensatie Les Baudouins Morts over een mevrouw die toevallig dezelfde voor- en achternaam heeft als een rechtse politica (maar het gaat dus over iemand totaal anders, he).
