This book gives an overview of the principles of Linked Data as well as the Web of Data that has emerged through the application of these principles. The book discusses patterns for publishing Linked Data, describes deployed Linked Data applications and examines their architecture. The World Wide Web has enabled the creation of a global information space comprising linked documents. As the Web becomes ever more enmeshed with our daily lives, there is a growing desire for direct access to raw data not currently available on the Web or bound up in hypertext documents.
The funny thing with dreams is that when they come true, you are usually unprepared.

The mission of the Social Web Incubator Group , part of the Incubator Activity , is to understand the systems and technologies that permit the description and identification of people, groups, organizations, and user-generated content in extensible and privacy-respecting ways. The topics covered with regards to the emerging Social Web include, but are not limited to: accessibility, internationalization, portability, distributed architecture, privacy, trust, business metrics and practices, user experience, and contextual data. The scope includes issues such as widget platforms (such as OpenSocial, Facebook and W3C Widgets), as well as other user-facing technology, such as OpenID and OAuth, and mobile access to social networking services. The group is concerned also with the extensibility of Social Web descriptive schemas, so that the ability of Web users to describe themselves and their interests is not limited by the imagination of software engineers or Web site creators.
CrunchBase is now available as Linked Data including a SPARQL endpoint and a custom API builder based on SPARQLScript. Update: Wow, these guys are quick, there is now a full RSS feed for CrunchBoard jobs. I've tweaked the related examples. This post is a bit late (I've even been TechCrunch'd already), but I wanted to add some features before I fully announce " Semantic CrunchBase ", a Linked Data version of CrunchBase , the free directory of technology companies, people, and investors. CrunchBase recently activated an awesome API , with the invitation to build apps on top of it. This seemed like the ideal opportunity to test ARC and Trice , but also to demonstrate some of the things that become possible (or much easier) with SemWeb technology.
