Hi Everybody,

Olaf Hartig, Michael Hausenblas and myself are organizing the 2nd Linked
Data-a-thon [1] , sponsored by LATC - Linked Open Data Around-The-Clock,
which will be held at ISWC 2011 in Bonn. The main goal of the Linked
Data-a-thon competition is to develop innovative applications that showcase
the benefits of Linked Data ... in two weeks! The spirit of this competition
is to demonstrate what is possible with Linked Data, even in a short amount
of time. The competition starts on October 1, 2011, and it closes 14 days
later, on October 15, 2011. During this time each participating team works
locally or remotely to develop a Linked Data based application that
satisfies a set of requirements, which can be found in [1]. To enforce the
spontaneous, hackathon-like nature of this competition, the applications
must satisfy additional requirements that will be announced on October 1,
2011. Anybody can participate in this event and the submitted applications
will be presented at the Linked Data gathering during ISWC 2011. Ideally, we
hope to have somebody at ISWC to present. The winner will be chosen by a
judging panel and public voting at ISWC.

Given that there may be people who are interested in participating but do
not have a team, we hope that this mailing list could be a means to connect
people who share the same interest and are willing to form a group.

If you have any specific questions, please feel free to email me directly:
