I assumed someone had announced this amazing linked data source to the
list, but I did a search and found nothing, so I guess it falls on me
to say something.

CrossRef, the guardian of most of the DOIs (digital object
identifiers) that you encounter in scholarly articles, publishes RDF
for the almost 50 million articles that have CrossRef DOIs. Most
modern articles from scholarly journals get DOIs, so this is an
important collection of things to have URIs and data for.

My writeup is here:

Interesting things for this crowd to note:
  - they're using http: URIs
  - they're using 303

You can get the data incrementally but I'm not aware of a data dump so
you can't put the whole thing in your triple store, yet.  But
celebrate what they've done. (Facebook probably also has no bulk
download, right?)
