I am on the long flight back from the Semantic Tech & Business Conference in San Francisco to the good ol’ UK, to see how they got on with the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee festivities. I am reflecting on what my week at the conference has told me. It has told me that things are a changing – I got that impression last year too, but more so this year. Obviously, from the title of this post, it has something to do with Schema.org, Wikidata, and the Google Knowledge Graph…. [...]
Wikidata and Schema.org are great causes in both senses of the word – something to support and engage with as they make the web a better place for data, and causes that will stimulate change. Google Knowledge Graph is an early, but obvious, symptom of that change taking place. No doubt these three will be joined over the coming months with new sources of data or demonstrations of the benefits.
