I've been attending the Evergreen 2013 Conference in beautiful Vancouver. This morning, I was honoured to be able to give a presentation on some of the work I've been doing on implementing linked data via schema.org in Evergreen. I think I did a good job of explaining the potential value of linked data and arguing for improving Evergreen's schema.org publishing ninja skills.
My slides, with a reasonable number of useful speaker notes to provide context, are available in LibreOffice format.
In addition, the amazing organizers of the conference also streamed most of the talk and the recording will be available on the conference web site in a week or two.
I felt pretty dirty not using HTML5 + RDFa Lite to actually mark the whole thing up; there was some question close to the time of the conference as to whether anything but PPT or perhaps PDF would be an acceptable format... a concern that was subsequently removed, but a little too late to be worthwhile changing course.
The room was standing-room only (well, sitting-on-the-floor-room only), and one of the organizers accidentally sat on and unplugged the Ethernet cable, so something like ten minutes were lost. Heh!
