Hi all,

Tim just gave a great keynote here at Linked Data Planet here in NYC, including highlights such as stating again that Linked Open Data is "the semantic web done right", and "a paradigm shift all over again" - great encouragement (not that we need any ;) for all the hard work put in by everyone in the LOD community :)

One of the other things Tim raised was the idea of having a "Linked Data Shopping List", capturing government, commercial or community data sets that we want to see published as Linked Data, perhaps as a basis for some kind of campaign/initiative to pursue this. With this in mind I've started a list and seeded it with one of my favourite non-Linked Data data sets:

http://community.linkeddata.org/MediaWiki/index.php?ShoppingList

Note that (in my interpretation, not sure about Tim's), it's a Shopping List not a Wish List, because wish list implies aspiration, shopping implies going out and getting ;)

Cheers,

Tom.
