Values, Types and Foundations

Recaps my Values, Types and Foundations talk at the OMG September Technical Meeting. Describes the computational, logic and philosophical presentation topics. Describes the demonstrations based on Oleg Kiselov and Anton Setzer’s work in Haskell and Agda. Constrasts the approach with ISO 24707 Common Logic.

Information Flow: A Web of Constraints on the Giant Global Graph

Information flows on the Giant Global graph because of regularities. Those regularities are the result of constraints on parts of the Giant Global Graph. The flow of information based on these constraints means there are WEBS of data, not THE web of data. Rick provides a number of recommendations for Linked Data.
