A short introduction to Semantic Web standards for people with some software engineering background. Using the example of the "Mythical Man Month", this talk describes how one can use an OWL Ontology to describe the relationship between people and software bugs. Makes the case that the best way to get the Semantic Web going is by opening up valuable databases to SPARQL endpoints.
Keywords: Ontology, Semantic Web, HTTP URIs
