The Linked Data Glossary mentions Meta Data Object Schemes (MODS), a Library of Congress (LOC) citation scheme.  As you know, Bernadette, I (heart) Linked Data to death, and (user) annotations are a great idea. Still for Government Policy, annotations as Crowd Sourced Opinion, Easter Eggs, Sponsored Links (whatever you want to call them) are not Democracy Ajectives.  They are easy to remove/redact from XML Citations (like MODS) with XSLT (also mentioned in the Glossary), provided that you intended to remove them at some point.  You simply enclose the material to be redacted as Tagged Marginalia (a Librarianesque Term for "don't let me catch you writing in the margins!, keyword:catch").  In my example (MODS 3.4+XHTML 1.0) the tag is <tm class="rust" />.  Validation by XSD, partial redaction (to comments) etc. is possible.  I am having trouble uploading to my web site at the moment, so if you want a copy of the example, email me.

I am not sure what this "feature" looks like in JSON or JSON-LD.  I doubt is quite that transparent.

Hi Paolo,
Oh like that idea of annotations a lot!  I don't want to get ahead of myself here but assuming the Open Data Directory CG is happy to publish the glossary as LOD from the w3.org namespace, we can readily incorporate a new feature supporting the open annotations spec as nanopublications using Callimachus (the FLOSS data platform that the Open Data Directory is built on).  That would be a nice exemplar and certainly a good demonstration of LOD in the wild.

Thank you for the suggestion and we'll report back on progress this summer.  Maybe you can test the future implementation & see if the workflow makes sense?


Cheers,

Bernadette
