Let's put Linked Data to use by building a federated directory of Linked 
Data oriented products and services. All we need to do is publish this 
information using Turtle documents. The pattern is basic, just create a 
file and publish to a Web accessible location. Note, services like 
Dropbox, Amazon S3, Microsoft SkyDrive, Box.NET, Google Drive etc.. take 
the following distractions out of the loop:

1. domain ownership
2. dns server access and admin privileges
3. http server access and admin privleges
4. URIs patterns for entity names.

The steps boil down to:

1. Create a Turtle document
2. Save to public folder
3. Post a message here or on Twitter, G+, LinkedIn, Facebook etc.. about 
your application
4. Done -- the Web will do the REST!

Here's our contribution:

1. http://virtuoso.openlinksw.com/data/turtle/ -- currently a little out 
of date since it needs to include URIBurner (free Linked Data middleware 
service), ODE (free brrowser extensions), and our HTML and iOS5 
Certificate generators that include WebID watermarks re. verifiable 
identity etc..
