The Book of Trogool


I will be speaking for UKSG’s conference next April. They haven’t given me a topic? but they want a talk title by the end of this month.

I have to write a paper alongside the talk, and I hate writing papers with every last fiber of my being, so if I have to do it, I want to make it count for something.

Anybody got any suggestions? What should I write and talk about, that the UKSG audience needs to hear? If you think you’re among the intended audience, what would you want to hear or read from me?

    I quote:

    “I have my… issues… with “semantic” computing.”

    So how about “Semantic Web: A Skeptic’s View”?

    This audience has bombarded with people had-waving about semweb stuff (including me). Would be great to hear some heretical views on this.

    Well, as one of my chief issues with it is that I find both the concepts and their tools and applications so difficult to understand that I have doubts about their ability to penetrate actual practice… I’m not sure I’m the best person to do that. 😉
