Pop Up window Bookmarklet Enhancement
Opens a Pop Up window for EASY Posting!
SPECIAL NOTE!! Please Rename the Folder in this Zip file AFTER you have Backed Up your Original Bookmarks Folder in the /mod directory. The folder in this ZIP file once you put it in the /mod directory must be Re-named to: bookmarks I want to give thanks for an idea that started with Ping.FM and their Bookmarklet Pop Up Window code. Like all things create a BackUp of the original Elgg Bookmark Folder in the Mod directory if you ever want to go back to that one. Just Unzip the folder bookmarks_PopUp into your /mod directory and go into Admin to enable and turn on the plugin. Then you go back to your bookmarklet page and you need to re-install your bookmarklet to your browser tested works in Firefox and IE 8 and now you got a Pop Up Window! I am looking for someone to add to this create a Auto Close with a slight Delay like Facebook has or Digg.com and Scuttle. Please let me know if you can do this!

Every so often, someone writes to me or to the public-qa-dev mailing list to report bugs, or simply to give thanks on the semantic data extractor.
I’m always pleasantly surprised when I hear that, what started as a 10 minutes demonstrator of the semantics attached to HTML, is actually used as a tool by a number of developers.
With a name such “semantic data extractor”, it was a bit of a shame that the tool didn’t highlight the usage of GRDDL or RDFa on pages that use either of these technologies; I have just added detection of both of these to the extractor.
As a bonus, I have also added detection of non-semantic markup: at this time, it will detect purely-wrapping
<span>, and tables with a single row or a single column (which have good chances to be layout tables); if you have suggestions for detecting other non-semantic

The URI Query Agent Model
A Semantic Web Enabler
As the Semantic Web emerges and the behavior of automated software becomes increasingly directed by explicit knowledge about resources, gathered from disparate sources, the need for a standardized means of sharing authoritative knowledge about a given resource, based solely on the URI denoting that resource, becomes critical to achieving a fully open, global, scalable, and ubiquitous Semantic Web.
URIQA (URI Query Agent) is a model for knowledge discovery, both from authoritative sources as well as from arbitrary third party sources. It introduces an extension to the present web architecture used to indicate to a web server that it should resolve the specified URI in terms of knowledge about the resource denoted by that URI rather than in terms of a representation of the resource in question.
URIQA employs a particular form of resource description called a concise bounded description. A concise bounded description of a resource is a general and broadly optimal unit of specific knowledge about that resource to be utilized by, and/or interchanged between, semantic web agents.
Concise bounded descriptions are defined in the W3C Member Submission http://www.w3.org/Submission/CBD/.
Extending the Web Architecture
Semantic Web Methods for HTTP
URIQA extends the present web architecture by introducing the following new HTTP methods for interacting with an authoritative semantic web enabled web server:
The Nokia URIQA semantic web service is implemented as an RDF Gateway Package. This service constitutes the backbone of the Nokia Semantic Web Server, and also provides a reference implementation demonstrating the correct behavior of a URIQA enlightened server. The Nokia implementation may be downloaded and used free of charge, in accordance with the terms specified.

With over a billion users, today’s Internet is arguably the most successful human artifact ever created. The Future Internet, an initiative driven by the European Union, has become a prime research focus of STI International and the Service Web 3.0 project. In order to explain, promote, and attract new contributotrs, we created a video to be viewed by stakeholders, who may be non-experts, in a new generation Internet. The video outlines the basic themes of the European Union’s Future Internet initiative. These include: an Internet of Services, where services are ubiquitous; an Internet of Things where in principle every physical object becomes an online addressable resource; a Mobile Internet where 24/7 seamless connectivity over multiple devices is the norm; and the need for semantics in order to meet the challenges presented by the dramatic increase in the scale of content and users.
The video has proved to be popular and has already appeared on the main pages of the EU Future Internet Portal and the Software and Services Unit website.
Please distribute this link in order to futher promote ambitious goals behind the vision of the Future Internet, supported by STI International and the Service Web 3.0 research project.
