Hi all,

Just a quick note to say that we've now got 83 LOD packages up as part
of the 'Semantic Web' group on CKAN:


This includes the contents of the list on the ESW wiki [1]. Further
details are copied below.

Do people think this should be renamed the 'Linking Open Data' group -
or should we stick with the 'Semantic Web' group?

Also if anyone knows of any datasets we should include - you can
register these directly on CKAN, or pop me a note and I'll add them.

Finally we'd love to hear from anyone who'd like admin privileges to
help curate this (just register your OpenID on CKAN and drop me a

Best wishes,

Dear all,

I've registered a batch of 65 RDF datasets with ckan.net using the
REST API. They can be viewed together here:

These come from the Semantic Web (ESW) wiki:

There were a few duplicates with what is in ckan already and I've done
a manual merge of these. If you do spot any issues with these datasets
then either correct them or let me know. All the best,
