Marcos catches up with Harry Halpin, W3C’s GRDDL Working Group Chair and evil genius, at the Oxford Internet Institute in the UK. Harry talks about the use cases for GRDDL (Gleaning Resource Descriptions from Dialects of Languages – yep, great name! 😛 ), an alternative way to view the Web, and gives some excellent suggestions as to how we can bridge the HTML Web and Semantic Web divide.
