Waffle.io ยท Work Better on GitHub Issues

waffle issue board

You already open source your code, so why not open source your process too? Everyone can see your public Waffle board, so go on and show the world what you're working on. Make it easy for contributors to know what's ready to work on next by adding a Waffle badge to your GitHub README, or embed a throughput graph to highlight recent activity on your project.

OpenSync project is an ongoing effort to create a synchronization framework that will be platform independent, general purpose synchronization engine utilizing modular plugins for content formats and different kind of connection types. Being based on plugins would allow extending it easily to new purposes and devices without radically changing the architecture itself, allowing it to support wide variety of devices used today and in the future.

Semantic Web

Celeste just posted an article about Tim Berners-Lee's Semantic Web. The article she cited got me thinking.

I'm just beginning to understand this "semantic web" concept. Let's see. The problem is that our web pages contain data. This data has meaning to use, but it's gibberish to computers. We need to mark this data with metadata describing it.

Say i want to search the Internet for a recipe with asparagus and steak. I can search for those terms but will i get a recipe with asparagus and steak or a page of text with the words recipe, asparagus, and steak in it?

Example. Assume a web page describes an Independence Day Fireworks show. This event has a date, location, and other attributes. However, i can't write a program that will search the web for dates and locations. I mean i can search on Washington DC, but i will get too much wrong information. It would be nice to write a program that automatically searches the Internet for events AND imports the interesting ones into my calendar.

This integration with applications can also be done for contact information like email, phone number, geographic location, tv schedule, weather, etc.

There are two places where i do see this.

One is called discovery in the blog world. If i want to trackback ping someone's article, i throw their URL into my form and my software will extract articles that can be commented on.

The other, also with blogs, entails discovering the friends of a blogger by searching their blog page for RDF and Friend of a Friend (FOAF). (There's another name for this that i can't find.) Here's a good article. See Listing 1.
