Hey Dan, 

Thanks so much for reaching out about this. We would love to have some structured documentation on semantic web/structured data on webplatform. For the moment, until you are in a position to contribute more, how about you write a spec of what articles you would include on these topics, and I could include them on WPD as a set of article stubs for now?

All the best,
