Announcing Semantic Hack (June 1, 2013)

What could you build if the entire web was your database? Could you do it in a day?

We’re glad to be working with the fine folks at to host the inaugural Semantic Hack at the Semantic Technology & Business Conference in San Francisco on June 1, 2013.

See additional details and registration at, and more inside this post.

This will be an opportunity for developers and designers to work not only with Diffbot APIs (and some of the fine Diffbot team members who will be in attendance), but many other semantic technologies — RDF, SPARQL, OWL, entity extraction, natural language processing, sentiment analysis — and newly-available datasets. Semantic Hack is free and prior experience with semantics is NOT required to participate. You might as well grab a Diffbot token though first.

Registration is open, but space is limited. We have some room for additional  sponsors and/or featured technologies; if you’re interested, please drop us a line.

Here are the details in structured form:

  • Who: Developers, designers, and others interested in semantic technology
  • What: A day-long hackathon to build applications that help further expand the semantic web, or demonstrate the power of accessible web data
  • Where: Hilton San Francisco Union Square
  • When: Saturday, June 1, 2013, 9am – 9pm

See you there, Semantic Hackers!
