Nice to see she’s got a professional interest in museums too.

ps: my quick notes from TBL’s IEE talk in 2007.

  1. Thanks for the link, but since it was me who asked the question about how to get the semantic web to actually happen, I should point out it was a bit of a leading question – it’s a perception I encounter a lot, and I wanted an answer I could pass on.
