representing binary content in rdf

There is a recommendation underway about how to embed binary content in RDF:
http://www.w3.org/TR/Content-in-RDF/

We discussed that a lot in the sourrounding of the semantic wiki on the 
desktop.

No news, but good to have a vocab.
Also, the encoding of binaries in XML is a bit complex and takes space 
and processing time,
but better than nothing.

Leo

Call for Participation: WOD-PD 2008


                 WOD-PD 2008 Call for Participation

                  WEB OF DATA PRACTITIONERS DAYS
                 22-23 October 2008, Vienna, Austria
                    http://www.webofdata.info/

The Web of Data Practitioners Days is a new application-oriented event for
Semantic Web practitioners and interested newcomers. It is intended to 
communicate the results of the past years' semantic systems activities to a
broader audience, especially to practitioners from industry and academia.
In a cooperative effort, four major Austrian institutions, which have
actively been conducting research in that area throughout the past years,
will set the stage for this event.

Participants will have the opportunity to see how semantic technologies may
improve and enhance existing Web-based software systems and how the Web of
Data will provide a completely new paradigm of managing globally 
interlinked information. As a result, attendees will get a better idea
about the practical benefits of semantic solutions and researchers obtain
valuable feedback for further research directions aiming at productivity
and applicability of the existing technology for real-world use cases.

KEYNOTE SPEAKERS

We are proud to announce that the following experts will give talks and
guide hands-on sessions at the Web of Data Practitioners Days:

=== Introduction ===
Knowledge Management (KM) deals with creating and exchanging knowledge
within groups of persons in organisational contexts. The potentials and
needs of the individual is often not in the focus of KM efforts, although
no-one would deny that the individual as knowledge bearer, -user and
-creator is naturally the most essential part of knowledge management. The
main goal of PKM is make the individual more productive - and thereby the
