The 7th International Semantic Web Conference, Karlsruhe, Germany (ISWC08) was just great and very busy for me: a workshop paper at the Social Data on the Web workshop SDoW08, nice lightning talks (see also video captures) and two tutorials:

On the first day (26 Oct) I gave the RDFa – Bridging the Web of Documents and the Web of Data tutorial (see also video captures) and on the second day (27 Oct), together with Chris Bizer, Tom Heath, Richard Cyganiak and Olaf Hartig the How to Publish Linked Data on the Web tutorial, again see also video captures. They also had a nice idea to support discussions: a dedicated social network.

All Praise the Paggr! Hard work at the LOD tutorial :)
