RDFa Talk at WebDirections South 2010

Hi all,

just a quick link to the slides [1] I presented at WebDirections South 2010 [2] in Sydney last week, where I was invited to talk at the W3C track. This was an interesting venue to speak at, since most of the people attending were Web designers, developers and project managers (e.g., working on the Australian version of data.gov) - not at all a Semantic Web crowd. In fact, very few people had heard much of RDFa, let alone RDF. As a result, most questions I got after the talk were pretty basic.

Mark gave a great talk about RDFa at the same venue last year, so I tried to minimise the overlap with his talk, and instead focus on things that happened in the past 12 months, in particular the amazing level of uptake (OGP, Drupal, ...) and of course the new things in RDFa 1.1. There won't be much new in the slides for people on this list, but I thought it would be nice to share them and report on some dissemination!
