Dear all,

I think this might be of interest for some of you. The submitted texts might 
also be a nice addition to the content on linkeddata.org. Having a 
collection of short, well-written 'visions' about the future of linked data 
from different viewpoints might be very helpful.

The Semantic Web Company in Vienna, Austria is giving away a full conference 
pass (worth $1095!) for the LinkedData Planet Conference 
http://www.linkeddataplanet.com/ taking place on June 17-18, 2008 in New 

Confirmed keynote speakers include Sir Tim Berners-Lee, Kingsley Idehen and 
Ian Davis.

The conference pass gives you access to:

* All Conference Sessions for June 17 - 18
* Conference Breakfasts, Lunches and Networking Events
* Conference Bag and take-home specialty items
* Access to online conference proceedings

Here is what you need to do to enter the competition:

Send us a brief description of your vision of the impact that linking Open 
Data will have on business, politics and culture. Share with us your ideas 
how linking open data will change the world - with all the pros and cons 

We welcome ideas in the following categories:

* mashups
* search applications
* ontologies & schemas
* scenarios for lifestyles
* policies for the practice of linking Open Data

Please find more details on our blog - submissions can be made as comments 
on the Vision Competition blog entry.


Travel expenses and accomodation costs are not included in the prize. The 
prize can be collected on site.
