Tessera at the Semantic Web Austin Launch Party

Ever tried to write an application that sits on top of a fine mist of questionably accurate factoids spread in varyingly dense clumps across the whole Internet? It's a pain. The {s,S}emantic Web is a terrible platform for applications. Developers need real APIs.

I'll be at the Semantic Web Austin Launch Party (Tue, June 17th) talking about Tessera, an experiment in wrapping the distributed social web (XFN, FOAF, hCard, etc) with OpenSocial, the API everybody-but-Facebook is using to expose out their social networking platform.

Tessera is nowhere near complete, but it's far enough along to run simple OpenSocial gadgets, and I hope to have the OpenSocial version of Popcitation up and running by tonight. Or not. But there's certainly enough there to make for some interesting discussion. Hope to see you in Austin!

First, thanks for the comment on Austin 3.0.

Second, great blog! You've got some really great work on here. Would have loved to talk to you at the launch party last night.

See you're based in Dallas - i'll be up during the first week of July. Would love to pick your brain!
