Following on from the previous post about Visualizing data in Excel, I decided to have a look at how easy it would be to load data from a SPARQL endpoint into an Excel Power Map.
Over the last year and a half, the founders of NetworkedPlanet worked together on building BrightstarDB, a unique native .NET triple store with support for MVC application models and LINQ. BrightstarDB was released a couple of months ago as an open-source project on GitHub where we continue to work on extending and improving it. We hope that being open-source with a very permissive MIT license will enable .NET developers to experiment with and use BrightstarDB in all sorts of projects, large and small. However, we realize that for some projects the lack of commercial support for a component such as BrightstarDB can be a deal-breaker.
NetworkedPlanet are pleased to announce the release of version 3.3 of the TMCore SharePoint Module.
I was privileged to be one of the attendees of the Open Data on the Web workshop organized by W3C and hosted by Google in London this week. I say privileged because the gathering brought together researchers, developers and entrepreneurs from all around the world together in a unique mix that I’m sure won’t be achieved again until Phil Archer at W3C organizes the next one.
