Update: I've posted an update on the status of Planet Semantic Focus.

Since day one my goal for Semantic Focus has been to create a central hub for Semantic Web talk and activity. To help reach that goal I've been hard at work on a new feature for Semantic Focus! Planet Semantic Focus is an aggregator of Semantic Web buzz, capturing talk about the Semantic Web from hundreds of sources including:

  • Semantic Web blogs
  • Technorati
  • Corportate blogs and press releases
  • Digg
  • Slashdot
  • Ma.gnolia
  • ...and any source that tracks or reports Semantic Web activity

So far the aggregator has gathered roughly 800 blog entries related to the Semantic Web and that is using a small subset of the actual list of sources as a seed for testing.

I started working on Planet Semantic Focus because there isn't a single place you can go right now to read all the latest Semantic Web news. It's my goal to bring the Semantic Web to fruition and one way to do that is to help everyone working on the Semantic Web stay in touch with what's going on. PSF makes it easy to get a broader picture of what everyone is talking about.

I'm indexing full posts for search purposes but the site only displays a few sentences from each blog entry. After all the point of PSF is to stay in touch with the Semantic Web community at large.

I'll be releasing the site soon, I am currently tackling user interface and content encoding issues. Feedback welcomed!
