>> 2 Project Description
>> ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
>>
>> 2.1 Abstract
>> =============
>>    Linked Data describes a method of publishing structured which
>>    can be interlinked and makes data more useful.These are not
>>    intended to serve web pages rather they are used to share information between
>>    computers so that they can read and interpret easily. RDF,
>>    designed as meta data model is and has been used for Linking
>>    Data. One of the profound examples of its use can be seen in Facebook's
>>    Open Graph. The aim of my project is to conclude the final stages
>>    of JSON-LD [JSON - Linked - Data] [based upon JSON, as the name
>>    suggests] by making Schema's, Context, Applications that show
>>    JSON to JSON-LD conversions etc. JSON-LD is a light weight JSON-Linked
>>    Data that provides context to a data.
>>
>>
>> 2.2 Description
>> ================
>>    JSON-LD is at the final stage of standardization and is being
>>    actively developed at W3C. During GSoC I would do a wide-range of
>>    development not only over JSON-LD implementations but also for
>>    [http://www.json-ld.org] which will include UI/UX, a responsive
>>    design for the website, along with
>>    documentations, tutorials and yes! writing W3 specifications too.
>>
>>    The Deliveribles will be :-
>>      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
>>         believe I wont have to fiddle around with the LESS files of
>>         Bootstrap. So IMHO things will be prtetty easy.
>>         Also, as per the source file, all the major files will are in
>>         .html and a few in .PHP so integration wont be difficult at
>>         all. Moreover, during the course of development I would be using
>>         Dropbox to host the static websites, so that the changes can be
>>         seen easily.
>>      2. JSON-LD is based upon Context's described as per
>>         [http://schema.org]. So next I would be writing all the
>>         necessary Context's along with the help of Manu Sir (mentor). This phase
>>         will be very useful for JSON-LD and applications relying upon
>>         these (in-future). This will also be used for conversion of JSON to
>>         JSON-LD. I believe these Contexts will find a good position in
>>         the specification too.
>>      3. Based on Context I plan to develop a JSON-LD creator for
>>         People, Places, events. This app will be hosted at
>>         [http://json-ld.org/creator]. This app will be majorly using
>>         Javascript for conversion of JSON to JSON-LD at client
>>         side. So far I believe a bit more of brainstorming has to be done on the
>>         app. For example, how the input JSON is received. If its through a
>>         <copy>-<paste> mechanism in text area then I believe there
>>         wont be much of hurdle. But in-case its a full fledged-app to
>>         get the json from an API, then there will be considerable
>>         amount of work. So from GSoC perspective, I intend to keep it
>>         a minimal one i.e a <copy> <paste> for JSON. So that the
>>         fucntionality and conversion can be easily visualized.
>>      4. Next I plan to develop a LinkedIN Application using the
>>         Javascript API, which will be hosted at
>>         [http://json-ld.org/linkedin] to demonstrate the conversion of
>>         JSON to JSON-LD. For using the Javascript-api, I might have
>>         require commit rights of the site else I will have to register
>>         an applicaiton and work from localhost.
>>      5. By now, I expect to have a fair idea of working with JSON-LD,
>>         so I will do documentations where-ever necesary and write
>>         code-samples, examples and tutorial :)
>>      6. Revamping of  [http://json-ld.org/playground/] to end up looking
>>         like this: [http://rdfa.info/play/] will be my next hack. As
>>         discussed the d3.js tree part at the bottom will be a brownie
>>         but I would love to try that as well.
>>
>>
>> 2.3 What have you done so far with this idea
>> =============================================
>>     1. So far I am reading the specification
>>        [http://www.w3.org/TR/json-ld/]
>>     2. Trying out LinkedIn Javascript API and have registered an app
>>        on LinkedIn with the name of JSON-LD
>>     3. Understanding more of JSON-LD
>>     4. I plan to do a bit of revamping of the [http://www.json-ld.org]
>>        before the Google Summer of Code, 2013 begins
>>
>> 2.4 Anticipated challenges
>> ===========================
>>     1. Understanding Context's and writing them as per
>>        [http://schema.org]
>>     2. LinkedIn API
>>     3. Conversion of JSON to JSON-LD.
>>     4. Writing a W3C specification.
