To assist work for Linked Data, when designing a database, please observe the following:
Given that the Alpha release of Artivity for MacOSX is now ready to download, this was a good chance to create a new online presence where the most recent Artivity versions can be found. Check out:
This is a more outward looking website highlighting some important features of Artivity as well as featuring links to the research project page (this page) and the partner pages.
Future Artivity releases for all platforms will be made available through that website.
For now: happy browsing!
Sebastian Faubel and Moritz Eberl from Semiodesk have been working hard on the first version of Artivity for the MacOSX which supports Adobe PhotoShop, Adobe Illustrator and Google Chrome.
Last month, Sebastian, Moritz and I attended the Libre Graphics Meeting and gave a paper about Artivity. The paper was received very well and we did have a short discussion about the project following the presentation. Two issues were raised:
With a bit of a delay, I am updating the project blog to announce that Artivity has been awarded funding for the third phase of the project. See Daniela's blog entry about it.

The first batch is already up from the artist Gino Ballantyne, but I will be getting the second machine with the rest of the data over the weekend so I will be publishing more. For reference this data is here:
