Hi all,

there was quite some interest in Linked Data at this year's World Wide 
Web Conference (WWW2007). Therefore, Richard Cyganiak, Tom Heath and I 
decided to write a tutorial about how to publish Linked Data on the 
Web, so that interested people can find all relevant information, best 
practices and references in a single place.

The tutorial gives an overview about the general ideas behind Linked 
Data and answers questions like: How to name data items? Which 
vocabularies should I use to represent information? What should I 
return as RDF description for a URI? How to set RDF links to other 
data items? Afterwards, we describe several practical recipes for 
publishing information as Linked Data on the Web.

The tutorial is found at 
http://sites.wiwiss.fu-berlin.de/suhl/bizer/pub/LinkedDataTutorial/

The best practices that we recommend in the tutorial are based on the 
current work of the W3C Technical Architecture Group (TAG) as well as 
on practical experience from the W3C SWEO Linking Open Data community 
project(http://esw.w3.org/topic/SweoIG/TaskForces/CommunityProjects/LinkingOpenData) 
which has published various datasets as Linked Data on the Web. 
Collectively, the datasets currently consist of over one billion RDF 
triples, which are interlinked by 250,000 RDF links.

We are very interested in your opinion about the tutorial as well as 
about Linked Data in general. Especially, we would like to know:

1. If you strongly disagree with any of the recommended best 
practices?
2. Did we miss any useful tools or services in the practical recipes 
section?

Cheers

Chris Bizer, Richard Cyganiak, Tom Heath
