Ontotext’s 2016: What Did You Liked The Most On The Blog

It’s been a busy year for Ontotext and a very successful one. As 2016 comes to an end we decided to have a re-cap. Since it is hard for us to choose only five best articles we decided to ask the data. Nearly 10 000 people read our blog this year and these are the 5 posts that gathered most interest.

5. Our Networked Lives, Publishing and Semantic Technologies

We start with a post that explains how linked data makes it easier to navigate our digital and not so digital lives in a sea of news and information. Yes, we did that in the beginning of the year that ended with “post-truth” as it’s official. Just a start!

If you are interested in how open data changes everyday lives of millions of people, this post is for you. It shows real life examples of how opening a city’s data leads to innovation, business growth and most importantly improvements for citizens. On this note, we also supported the first innovation hackathon in Sofia this year (http://ontotext.com/company/news/ontotext-sofia-open-data-hackathon/). We are guessing not everyone thinks of open data when waiting for the bus and late for work but it might actually be an answer to this daily problem.
