SocialDevCamp : Harry Chen Simplifies the Sematic Web

I attended the SocialDevCamp in Baltimore on Saturday 10th May. This is a “unconference” so people come to the event and then suggest sessions and then vote on them.

My wife's viewpoint is that it is difficult to sleep on the Emirates flight since it starts in the morning. I enjoy the morning flight. My game plan is to sleep less for a few days to my Emirates flight. Once on the flight, I divide …
