Where is the Linked Data ? At the very least, make it user agent 
discoverable. For instance, if the user agent only groks HTML and Web 
Linking patterns, place a reference in <link/> within <head/> to an 
actual RDF document (e.g., one bearing Turtle content that describes the 
Book). For HTTP oriented user agents, you can repeat the pattern via 
"Link:" response headers.

Linked Data should be discoverable via Follow-Your-Nose link exploration 
patterns :-)
