DESCRIPTION

I gave this talk at the 2009 Association of Subscription Agents. It describes the concept of technology waves, and how we are at the start of the semantic web waves. The presentation describes two projects Talis is undertaking with scholarly content around the semantic web - a society social networking prototype called Xiphos Network and a product called Talis Aspire to deliver eContent to end users via scholarly resource lists.
