Sparqling 5 years of semantic web evolution

The Semantic Web School has monitored press releases about semantic technologies and related stuff over the past 5 years. A collection of about 1.200 links and summaries on articles are the result. These articles were tagged and those tags are mainly linked to wikipedia – so this might be an interesting data collection for some web applications…

Inspired by the work of of LinkingOpenData (W3C SWEO) and dbpedia we´re happy to announce that now there is a Sparql endpoint for that data which is open for the public.  Ideas for some mashups are:

  • Showing on a timeline which topics came and went
  • Publishing a list of press releases linked with wikipedia articles
  • Extracting names of companies which are mentioned in the articles and calculating a tag cloud for them

Any other ideas?
