I just recently had the good fortune to be asked to be interviewed by the Semantic Web consultant and thinker Paul Miller for the “Nodalities” podcast. The interview was fairly wide-ranging, touching on some of the specific projects we’re working on at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, cultural heritage ontologies like the CIDOC-CRM, and our work with Thompson Reuters’ language processing tool, OpenCalais. Paul was a gracious interviewer, and seemed relatively tolerant of my somewhat rambling answers. You can find Paul’s accompanying blog post about the interview here. I’ve included the audio of the interview below, but you can also find it at the Nodalities blog, where you will also find a helpful list of links to resources mentioned in the interview.
