Hi all,

Together with this years I-Semantics conference we are organizing a 
Linking Open Data Triplification Challenge.

The challenge aims at expediting the process of revealing and exposing 
structured (relational) representations, which already back most of the 
existing Web sites, as well as raising awareness in the Web Developer 
community and showcasing best practices.

The challenge awards attractive prices (MacBook Air, EeePC, iPod) to the 
most innovative and promising semantifications. The prizes are kindly 
sponsored by OpenLink Software [2], Punkt.NetServices [3] and InfAI [4].

More Information about the challenge can be found at:

I think outreach to the Web developer communities (as intended with the 
challenge) is really crucial right now to expedite the Semantic Web 
deployment and I would be very excited if you support this effort - e.g. 
by spreading the word and/or submitting to the challenge.

Best,

Sören
