re: Education and Outreach

While not nearly as much fun as a LEGO breakout, the Community Directory presents a nice leveraging opportunity for E&O.  The Library of Congress Subject Headings and Vocabularies provide data in MADS/RDF.  These URL's in turn can be processed by the W3C RDF Validator to provide Triple Listings and detailed Graphical Visualizations for presentations.

For example: Albania

1. Go To <http://www.rustprivacy.org/2011/phase/gld/cd/>
2. Choose "[Europe].[Albania]" (Nickname:Open Data Albania) this opens <http://id.loc.gov/vocabulary/countries/aa.html>
3. Open the W3C Validator in a new window/tab <http://www.w3.org/RDF/Validator/uri>
4. Copy the link on the LOC Albania page, under Alternate Formats> MADS RDF/XML
5. Paste this link into the Validator "Check by URI" form and (there are several style options available) parse
