SquirrelRDF-IMAP is out!

At last, SquirrelRDF-IMAP code is available!

  • check it out from the SVN repository into Eclipse:
svn co
  • add Jena libs to the project's build path (I tested Jena 2.5.6 and it works fine)
  • the class to run is, a very very simple app which loads a ready made SPARQL query and sends a request to a gmail account I had set up for tests
  • inside "examples" you can find the file imap_map.n3 which contains the configuration. From here you can set up access to your own email accounts or the way mapping is done between my dummy email ontology and IMAP requests. In the "queries" directory you can find some example queries.

The tool is still very rudimental but I think it already gives an idea about some of the potentialities of querying mailboxes with SPARQL, meshing up data from different sources etc. If you are interested in the details there's also a techreport about this work here.

A big... well, HUGE thanks to Damian Steer who allowed me to integrate the IMAP plugin code into the official SquirrelRDF trunk!

People from Ibiza

Got back from Vocamp Ibiza + Future of Web Search 2009 Workshop. Just one word: great!

I spent a great time there and came back enlightened and with a lot of enthusiasm. Hope that will last long enough to produce something interesting :-)

Tom Heath has put some photos on Flickr. Enjoy!

PhD, at last

I'm finally done! Today I had my final dissertation, maybe a little too short (we only had 20' for the presentation, plus 10' for the questions) but at the end I was satisfied... Slides are available here.

For those who wonder why there are more slides after the end: well, I was keeping them to help me answer some possible questions... And the trick worked ;-)
