Weaving the Web of People, Content & Data (Teodora Petkova and Jason Barnard)

Teodora Petkova talks with Jason Barnard about weaving the web of people, content & data.

Teodora Petkova is a philologist fascinated by the metamorphoses of text on the Web. She is very much in love with the Semantic Web and today she joins Jason Barnard to share the transformation of our networked physical lives to the world of cyberia.

This is an episode full of fascinating resources! She starts with how the web was semantic from the beginning (referring to the book by the world wide web creator himself, Tim Berners), she also shares amazing insights into the concepts of giant global graph, cyberia and building readership (and provides references well worth reading – see below).

She has an amazing way of explaining the incredible interconnectivity of the web and the people who use it… and the correct way for marketers to communicate with their audience, how different actors can collaborate for a well-packaged digital strategy, and MUCH more.
