The Scottish Linked Data Interest Group will hold its first meeting on 13th July at the Outhouse in Edinburgh (Scotland). Readers based in Scotland may be interested in the group which has recently been formed by Bill Roberts who is co-founder of semantic web development consultants, Swrrrl. According to Bill, the meetings will:
- Have an emphasis on connecting different groups: people who have data to share, people who want to use data and people with tools for working with linked data.
- A roughly 50/50 split of presentations and time for discussions and networking, in an informal friendly atmosphere.
- Rotate the venue around the main cities of Scotland.
- Be held 4 times a year.
