It's like reporting a crook to the police. As a law abiding citizen, most don't know what to say, what is important, how to navigate through without being upset, etc. But this is not the same for crooks, as it's their profession... obviously, a well formed "reality engine" wouldn't be convenient for them, whilst a complete lack of resources to further STEM works to solve real world issues, is particularly problematic for the natural world
@konobi imho - decentralized verifiable claims, running off a decentralized network creates what I call, social encryption. If the verifiable interwoven datapoints are across.The web, interlinked, then to.change history, the difficult is much higher than modifying the database of a single operator, governed by a single jurisdiction. The.implication is, that an attacker would have to hack the web, depending on.The peer structures relating to the underlying set of claims
As noted, inconvenient for crooks

With enough parity, it would make for a very tough time

yala Hi, Firefox 65 on Fedora 29 currently displays SEC_ERROR_REVOKED_CERTIFICATE on https://databox.me/ for me.

@timbl
A great example of the “I want to view this thing with that viewer” two-uri problem we have all the time with linked data

@matrixbot
yala Who should I talk to or where would one report such an issue upstream? Is Manu Sporny (Gitter) knowledgeable of this?

@konobi
huh... it's giving me a choice of 2 certificates when visiting the URL

@timbl ooh yeah, good point (re two-url viewer problem)

@mediaprophet is https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/19IEgvdvwl_EOGhmIFinVQu4OerRojeje8PaZWGvoO4Q/edit#gid=0 a tools directory? If so, who controls read-write privileges ?

We desperately need a coherent protocol for filling this massive hole in the entire RDF-based Linked Data realm i.e., tools are too hard to find which inadvertently feeds a broken cycle that goes like this:

  1. Someone asks about existence of tools that addresses some problem
  2. Typical response: no such thing exists versus "I looked-up know directories and found nothing.."

I can convert Google Spreadsheet into 5-Star Linked Data (including a baseline ontology) in just a few mouse-clicks. Thus, we just need a place to seed this apps directory and a protocol for its maintenance are the missing pieces.

@kidehen i put it together when i was doing some schema tools work
the doc has public edit permissions
Jeff Zucker
@jeff-zucker
Nice list!
it’s a problem for w3 wiki pages too; often, the list of available tools are out of date
lots of dead links
@jeff-zucker / all - feel welcome to contribute to it; it was designed as a stop-gap

@ghost~57bc59d440f3a6eec060e93b
@kidehen the problem with the google-sheet, is both that it’s a manual process to go find all the resources as a researcher and that it doesn’t update; whereas if producers had a simple file to create, like readme.md or .rdf or whatever - alongside some sort of discoverability process
then in-effect, it could self-index
create a decentralised app store even, perhaps
i hope the concept makes sense...
konobi
@konobi
@kidehen the protocols likely exist already... there's an entire field where we deal with shuffling data around ontologies in a coherent manner already, it's just that it's a field a lot of us don't get a view into... network and data transit, not just TCP/IP, but bgp, igrp, ss7, etc... they should be reusable. The difference would then be in terminology and how that maps.

My FOSDEM talk on Solid is online: https://video.fosdem.org/2019/Janson/solid_web_decentralization.mp4
(slides: https://rubenverborgh.github.io/Slides-FOSDEM-2019/)
I aim for this to serve as a reference presentation of the goals and technical underpinnings of Solid.

@dmitrizagidulin
nicely done!
^^ Talking about the commoditization of computing (it talks about cloud here... though the reasoning sticks past "cloud" into fog/edge and beyond)... was great insight, especially then, all the way back in 2010
(and by commoditization, that's more in the "utility" model... like electricity)

@RubenVerborgh great talk... video was good, though it appears there's a 30 second gap in the camera feed toward the end... though it doesn't get in the way of the message

@mediaprophet re :point_up: February 9, 2019 3:11 PM:

I should have been clearer, a Google Spreadsheet is just an option for those who find spreadsheet editing easy.

Ultimately, folks will be able to embrace and extend the kernel we create by just making notes in their respective pods. They will do this by hand (e.g., using Turtle editors) or via tools that can save to pods like dokieli, OSDE, OSDS etc..

@konobi :point_up: February 9, 2019 3:19 PM:
I am referring to an agreed upon protocols amongst those of us keen to build this missing apps directory :)

@kidehen ah.
