2011-07-21: Towards a Machine-Actionable Scholarly Communication System

I've told all the members of my research group they should watch this, so I thought I might as well make the same recommendation to the rest of the world... Herbert Van de Sompel presented "Towards a Machine-Actionable Scholarly Communication System" at LIBER 2011 in Barcelona, Spain on June 30, 2011.

You really have to simultaneously watch the video and review the slides to get the full impact of the presentation. The first part is a succinct review of various projects, but starting at slide 16 ("nanopublications") things really get interesting. Well worth the 40 minute investment.
