Any good links about URL planning?

I’m trying to summarize my knowledge about the URLs and research all possible aspects of URL planning and design to write up something useful for others to use.

If you have any links to good articles, presentations, research papers or something, please send them my way (post as comments here, or twitt them at me @sergeyche or send them to @sergeychernyshev at or email me at sergey . chernyshev at gmail).

Will really appreciate your help!

History Hacker on History Channel

Bre Pettis is launching a History Hacker series on History Channel. Judging by his “Weekend Projects” podcast that he did for Make Magazine, it’s going to be good.

First pilot is going to air on September 26th at 8 and midnight. Watch it – it’ll help to have a series.

Here’s the trailer:

Too bad I can’t watch it – hope someday it all is going to be on-demand only.

MakeNYC #8

This time four teams competed in building a wind generator. Our team won generating more power then others and then we increased gear ratio and it generated even more power without any problem. I couldn’t part with our creation and took it home to show kids and maybe for modding later ;)

NY SemWeb FOAF loud bar meetup

Despite last moment notice from Marco yesterday, I went to NY SemWeb FOAF meetup at Brass Monkey.

It was loud as many of US bars are (I still can’t get used to it), but we had a very good chat about FOAF and it’s uses with Dan Brickley and others. This included various topic from SMW FOAF-ization, use of named graphs for historical data and the ways to recover foaf:topic_interest from “candidate for removal” as it gets more traction with DBPedia / LOD linkage.

I’m very interested in making FOAF more user-friendly to help further boost the adoption, I’ll hope to post here about it.
