Hi Nicolas,

indeed a nice presentation! A couple of small remarks:

1. In slide 16, you should change the reference to something like:

    <Person rdf:ID="me">
    <Person rdf:about="http://nr

, since @rdf:ID is like xml:id and names a fragment identifier, not
the entire URI.

(See e.g. <http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/xml/library/x-tiprdfai.html>.)

2. The "dbpedia2:" sparql prefix in slide 21 looks a bit odd. I
recommend using the same prefix in all the query examples. On a
similar note, "dbpedia-owl:" may look a bit odd? I did a quick search
but found no apparent conventions for common dbpedia prefixes, though
I found the ones in <http://sparcool.net/> to be quite appealing
("dpo" and "dbp" in this case). Just a thought.

3. To nitpick some more, in slide 17, I believe it's recommended to
use the DC term namespace <http://purl.org/dc/terms/> instead of the
nowadays legacy "elements/1.1/" one (though that's still very common
in the wild). See <http://dublincore.org/documents/dcmi-terms/> for

As said, just a couple of small remarks; overall it looks good. Good
luck on Saturday!

Best regards,
Niklas Lindström
