Leigh,

Re. Amazon, I think we can coordinate effort. The process would be 
something like this:

1. I give you an IP address to an AMI
2. AMI is then used to make a named snapshot
3. I then tell notify Amazon about the desire to make the snaphot a 
public snapshot

That's all it takes.

Irrespective, of the above, I am going to introduce you to the Amazon 
AWS folks.


btw - we've held off (i.e. told Amazon to await a newer snapshot than 
what the currently posses)  on the LOD cloud release on Amazon due to 
late arrival of data from the Bio2RDF project (data is in place now) 
and  requests from Uniprot for us use later release etc..

Thus, you can ping me and I can get you access details to the staging 
device etc.. If you're fast, you can see how we make the LOD cloud data 
set available (from the AMI device) as this is on our todo for sometime 
today.

Re. VoiD we should firm up on how to expose these graphs in uniform 
manner. This is basically about acting on the discussion instigated by 
Daniel Schwabe pre. www2009. I also think  SPARQL endpoint discovery [1] 
has a nice role to play here. Ideally, we should have sparql endpoints 
registered with discovery servers and just maintain a list of these 
servers etc..

Thus, we go: [sparql-endpoint-discovery] --> <sparql-endpoint> --- [VoiD 
graph discovery] ---> Smart Linked Data Driven apps and solutions. 
Naturally, this will simply compliment what is discernable from any 
Linked Data URI that includes VoiD graph data or points to such via URIs 
using "seeAlso".
