Where Linked Data Meets Services
iServe is a platform for publishing Semantic Web Services as linked data, no matter their original format. iServe addresses the publication of services from a novel perspective based upon lessons learnt from the evolution of the Web of Data. It transforms service annotations expressed in a variety of formats including SAWSDL, OWL-S and MicroWSMO into what we refer to as Linked Services – linked data describing services – that can directly be interpreted by state of the art Semantic Web technologies for their discovery and further processing.

Social Software is...
Interacting with other people not only forms the core of human social and psychological experience, but also lies at the centre of what makes the internet such a rich, powerful and exciting collection of knowledge media. We are especially interested in what happens when such interactions take place on a very large scale -- not only because we work regularly with tens of thousands of distance learners at the Open University, but also because it is evident that being part of a crowd in real life possesses a certain 'buzz' of its own, and poses a natural challenge. Different nuances emerge in different user contexts, so we choose to investigate the contexts of work, learning and play to better understand the trade-offs involved in designing effective large-scale social software for multiple purposes.
