Since 2008 I am working at the Cologne-based North Rhine-Westphalian Library Service Center (hbz) on Open Data, Linked Data and its conceptual, theoretical and legal implications. I write at Übertext: Blog about the internet, libraries and metadata, Linked Open Data, communication, epistemology and the like. I have studied communication science and philosophy in Aachen and am currently studying Library and Information Science at the Cologne University of Applied Science.
Activities and projects: I contributed to the first large-scale publication of library catalog data under an open license, see here. For more information about the hbz’s Linked Open Data activities see here. Furthermore, I am coordinator of the Open Knowledge Foundation’s Working Group on Open Bibliographic Data and have initiated and co-written the Principles on Open Bibliographic Data. Talks and papers: My slides from last year’s presentations (all in German) and my articles on Open and Linked Library Data are listed here: http://www.bibsonomy.org/cv/user/acka47
