Martin should have said: BestBuy is now publishing RDF/XML :-)

Linked Data meme deployment is coming, of course. Stay tuned.

On an orthogonal note re. BestBuy and other Linked Data publishing 
endeavors, HTML+RDFa is the way to go re. default metadata 
representation (esp. if you prefer # based HTTP URIs as identifiers for 
your entities / data objects / resources). Basically, RDF/XML needs to 
continue its journey to the lower echelons of the Linked Data value 
pyramid (sooner rather than later).
