This is a podcast I recorded for Talis’ Nodalities series of talks. Because Facebook has recently made announcements about moving in a Semantic Web direction, I spoke with their Senior Open Programs Manager, David Recordon, about Facebook’s perspectives on many of the technologies they’re beginning to use. We ended up discussing Social Networking as a graph—that is: a network of related things. We also spoke about the Open Graph Protocol they’ve worked on and touched on privacy and walled gardens.

For more information, you can also read the Nodalities Magazine article I wrote about Facebook’s announcements.
