hi Everyone,

I have submitted my proposal
here<https://google-melange.appspot.com/gsoc/proposal/update/google/gsoc2013/vikashagrawal/62002>
 [
https://googlemelange.appspot.com/gsoc/proposal/update/google/gsoc2013/vikashagrawal/62002

It will be very considerate of everyone, if you take out some time and
guide me over this and help it improvise :)

>    Linked Data describes a method of publishing structured which

>    JSON to JSON-LD conversions etc. JSON-LD is a light weight JSON-Linked

> 2.2 Description
> ================
>    JSON-LD is at the final stage of standardization and is being

>      1. A new and revamped website ([http://wwww.json-ld.org]) using Twitter Bootstrap. The new
>         [http://www.json-ld.org] will be more intituive and will extensively rely
>         upon the exisiting classes of Twitter Bootstrap. So far I

>         the specification too.
>      3. Based on Context I plan to develop a JSON-LD creator for
