Talking with Mark Birbeck about RDFa and its use in Government

The ease with which RDFa can be embedded into existing HTML web pages makes it compelling as a means of easing traditional organisations and their workflows toward the Semantic Web. If we’re to realise Gordon Brown’s ambitions for making Government information more visible, tweaks to content management systems to inject a little RDFa onto their web sites may be an easier first step than a wholesale (albeit perhaps ultimately desirable) modification of back-end data storage.

In my latest podcast I talk with Mark Birbeck about his involvement in RDFa’s genesis, and his recent work with the UK’s Central Office of Information to aggregate vacancies information from across Government sites with a little RDFa.

Production of this podcast was supported by Talis, and show notes are available on their Nodalities blog.
