Administering A 160-year-old Database Knowledge Management At The New York Times

This video was recorded at Solomon seminar. The New York Times published its first issue on September 18, 1851. Over 58,000 days have passed in the ensuing 160 years and, in that time, The Times has printed, indexed and databased well over 15 million articles, reviews, editorials and obituaries. This is a lot of data. In my talk I will discuss several interesting aspects of our knowledge management history and detail three recent approaches The Times has employed to manage our ever-growing news archive with an emphasis on Linked Data and Semantic Markup. Specifically I will discuss our Linked Open Data Initiatives and provide an overview of rNews - a recently-developed standard for embedding publishing metadata in HTML documents.
