I recently gave a series of talks -- two live presentations and a webinar -- on Text Mining, Web 3.0 & the Semantic Web.  They were sponsored by a software publisher, Nstein, but other than focusing on Nstein's media & publishing sweet spot, my talks were vendor neutral and editorially independent.

I'm thrilled that a couple of attendees have blogged my talk, in particular, my June 18, 2009 London presentation.  John Welsh posted "Seth Grimes on the semantic web - but is B2B media ready to benefit?" and Peter Thomas's write-up was titled "Literary calculus?"  (I don't know why these two Brits are so enamored of question marks.) 

As an aside -- Peter had earlier posted a blog article, "A first for me...," noting that he "received my invitation to the event through Seth himself after having made contact with him on twitter.com."  I'm the first person Peter has met "IRL" -- you can surely guess what those letters stand for -- post our twitter contact.  I similarly met analyst Merv Adrian that way.  We became twitter friends through mutual real-life contacts.  Then one May morning he tweeted that he was in New York City for a meeting, near Penn Station.  It so happens that I was in New York to attend a different meeting, and I was staying near Penn Station.  Forty-five minutes later, Merv and I were sitting down to breakfast.  (For you foodies: We met at the Tick-Tock Diner at the corner of 34th St. and 8th Ave and both had the excellent corned-beef hash.)

Back to Text Mining, Web 3.0 & the Semantic Web -- If you'd like to listen to a recording of my Nstein webinar, please visit http://www.nstein.com/en/ondemand_webinars.php .  Let me know what you think!
