Ajax Demos -- BBC Catalogue --more added to XTech 2006 line-up

XTech 2006, 17-19 May, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
www.xtech.org

Ajax lightning demos line-up
The provisional line-up for the Ajax lightning demos is now available.
These will be rapid-fire 5-10 minute demos of some project or aspect of
Ajax technology, chaired by Simon Willison of Yahoo!

The lightning demos will round off the Ajax Developers' Day at XTech
2006. There's still the possibility of including your demo in this
session, contact Edd Dumbill for more details.

BBC Programme Catalogue launches: hear about how it was made at XTech
The BBC Programme Catalogue is a phenomenal resource. It contains
details of nearly a million TV and radio programmes, going back over 75
years, and nearly 1.2 million contributors to those programmes. It's
being added to daily by the BBC's dedicated team of archivists.

The web version of the catalogue was launched recently as an
experimental prototype by the BBC, a remarkable example of the sort of
action covered by XTech's open data track.

We're happy to announce that the two masterminds behind the work on the
catalogue will be presenting at XTech 2006.

Tom Loosemore, a senior manager at BBC New Media and the driving force
behind getting the catalogue out onto the open web, will be speaking on
Treating Digital Broadcast As Just Another API, and other such
ruminations.

Matt Biddulph, who created the software that brings the archive to the
web, will be describing the work involved in its creation in Putting
the BBC's Programme Catalogue on Rails. Matt, a member of the XTech
2006 programme committee, will also be co-presenting the Getting
Started with Ruby on Rails tutorial.

XTech 2006 schedule update
Several exciting new speakers and presentations have been confirmed for
XTech 2006.

Web 2.0 on Speed -- Mark Nottingham, Yahoo! Inc
14:00 Wednesday May 17, Core Technology track

Web caching hasn't significantly changed in years, and many believe
it's a casualty of a more dynamic, real-time "Web 2.0". That doesn't
have to be the case. This session shows what's possible right now, and
examines the future of HTTP caching.

The power of declarative thinking -- Steven Pemberton, W3C
16:45 Wednesday May 17, Open Data track

Discussing the requirements for Web Applications, and the underpinnings
necessary to make Web Applications follow in the same spirit that
engendered the Web in the first place.

Going Horizontal: Comparing Open Data Vocabularies Across Domains --
Marc de Graauw
14:00 Thursday May 18, Open Data track

XML-based open standard vocabularies are rapidly developing in - not
across - many vertical domains. Where is the common ground, and what
can be gained by standardization ? What works and what doesn't in
building vocabularies?

Embedded RDF -- Ian Davis, Talis Information Ltd
09:00 Friday May 19, Open Data track

Embedded RDF is a pattern for enriching content by interweaving
existing XHTML markup with RDF. The method used requires no new markup
so the XHTML can still be validated, is fully CSS compliant and will
not affect browser behaviour.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
