"There is always something happening on Wednesday nights in the
Tetherless World!" <http://tw.rpi.edu/web/twed>
This week's TWed talk (Weds 7p) will be led by TWC Ph.D. student Tim
Lebo, presenting his work on the innovative DataFAQS Linked Data
quality evaluation framework <http://bit.ly/yT7K1J>. A description
DataFAQS: LINKED DATA QUALITY REPORTS
An automated asynchronous Linked Data quality evaluation framework.
Because 5 stars aren't enough.
To realize its value, Linked Data must be used. But how good is any
part of the linked data cloud? Does it suit best practices? Is it
complete for a given application? Is it accurate, connected --
consistent? The DataFAQs linked data evaluation framework is being
designed to provide automated, asynchronous feedback to Publishers,
Curators, and Consumers about relevant portions of the cloud. Let's
accelerate the health of Linked Data.
TWed Logistics (Spring 2012):
* TWed schedule: http://tw.rpi.edu/web/twed#schedule

* We try to alternate TWed Talks with TWed Hackspaces. The alternating
pattern of TWed Talks and TWed Hackspaces may "off" due to leader
availability and Institute scheduling.
* Pizza or snacks will be provided for TWed Talks
* Live video streams of TWed Talks will available via ustream
* Videos of past TWed Talks are also available on ustream. Direct
links can be found in the schedule (below)
* TWed Talks from previous terms are archived; topical archive coming soon!
* TWed Talks are informal overview talks and tutorials on topics of
interest to the Tetherless World community. TWed gives members of the
lab the chance to share tools and expertise. TWed talks are not
lectures; they are expected to be highly interactive and fun. TWed
leaders are encouraged to include live "hack" activities in their
* TWed Hackspaces during the TWed time are informal group work
sessions inspired by the Hackerspace movement. This is a time when TWC
people will "be around" and you can rely on the "right" people being
available to answer your questions and help with your hacks. This is
also a great opportunity for project teams to "hack" together on
problems, with the knowledge and resources of TWC surrounding you.
