Project: YouTube Video on Triples in Linked Data
- Tom Baker <email@example.com>
- Joe Provenzano <firstname.lastname@example.org>, Washington International School, http://www.wis.edu/
- Video showing triples being constructed into graphs using tinkertoys or biochemical model kits.
- Scripted by the W3C Library Linked Data Incubator Group (at any rate the part about example triples used).
- Narrated by WIS students.
- Stop-action video, with hands coming in to connect new triples to the growing graph.
- Other visually interesting elements, such as animation, perhaps scripted by the students, for example to convey the notion of mashing-up data from different sources.
- Produced as a co-production of:
- LLD XG and DCMI to provide a basic script with voice-over.
- Tom to work with Joe and his students by explaining the content, brainstorming with them about presentation, and providing input and feedback on the visual results.
- Published on YouTube.
- Tom: Video could start slow, connecting up a few triples, then once the main idea has been presented, the action could accelerate, with hands flying in from right and left until a complex graph of linked data has resulted.
- Tom: Script could include merging data in French, Dutch, or other WIS languages, with the voice-over spoken by native-speaker students, with subtitles in English, tying in with the spirit and mission of WIS.
- Antoine: Using FRBR, show how the more intuitive "work" notion can allow to provide access to all these URIs of book-related E/M/Is (or any mixing of them) in a multilingual domain. Starting with one language-specific E/M/I worked out in RDF, then have hundreds of balls thrown at a poor guy with as many language-specific titles voiced in the background. But FRBR comes to the rescue, bringing structure with one magic ball that connects them all.
- Tom: If the storyboard were to involve discovering the BBC production through a Linked Data pathway, might we be able, in the YouTube video, to flash a one- or two-second clip from the movie, perhaps framed in a hand-drawn television screen? Maybe just long enough for the actress Ellie Kendrick to say "My name is Anne" -- something like that?
- Jodi: Rob Styles' 2008 code4lib talk "Finding Relationships in MARC data" had a nice concept of how to show the metadata (see, e.g. 6 min into the video)
Author page at the Open Library:
A search of Open Library (on what turns out NOT to be the title) shows a lot of related works, including teachers' editions:
Dutch GTAA thesaurus entries
- Anne Frank House in the Dutch GTAA thesaurus
- part of the museum - the actual "Achterhuis" where she hid
- her diary
BBC "microsite" for Anne Frank Series (Web page set up for some TV series, "brands")
- Note: The separation between microsites and the programmes data is a bit confusing, but the underlying data appears to be all available in RDF. All BBC programmes (since roughly 2006) are in /programmes. but some programs are important enough to have a microsite.
Linked Data for the programmes will be available from any of the /programmes URIs on the BBC website, e.g. by clicking through to the episode list:
- Adding .rdf to the URL, or doing content negotiation will get you RDF for that episode.
- /programmes provides RDF for programme brands, series, episodes, versions etc according to the programmes ontology
- /programmes links to any microsite using po:microsite
- http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00gvptr - the series homepage (with RDF available)
- /programmes/:pid/microsite will redirect to the microsite URL.
- microsites also link back to /programmes but not in a (machine) predictable way.
All five BBC episodes have clips (but not full length programmes) available online
- Would need to check whether short clips can be quoted for educational purposes without explicitly getting permission.
- BBC also tags programmes using dbpedia URIs.
- e.g., Chapter 5 is tagged with anti-semitism, which makes an [aggregation of all programmes tagged with anti-semitism http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/subjects/anti-semitism/all] with rdf for that subject
