Semantic- Social Networks

Here is a very interesting talk (Slides+Audio) by Story Henry a researcher at Sun Microsystems interested in the Semantic Web and Social Networks.

Henry gave this presentation at JavaOne 2008, and at the Internet Identity Workshop and the Data Sharing Summit in Mountain View this May.

The slides cover data portability between Social Networks, linked data, foaf (Friend Of A Friend project), security in distributed social networks, OpenId, they demo a real semantic Address Book written in Java, explain how it works,  SPARQL (a query language for the semantic Web), introduce one to rules, and give some ideas as to what a semantic desktop will look like…
