Well done with this - a great resource.

Well no-one seems to have had a go at making it Linked Data, so I have had a go, using a site I have been playing with for a bit.
(The other things there are of varying quality, although http://codelist.org/httpstatus/ is OKish.)

It's at
with a typical URI: http://codelist.org/ld/glossary/id/114
So quite a lot of questions about what might be wanted.
It isn't straightforward, which is a bit disappointing for a list about Linked Data:
I have tried to stick with what was in the page as much as possible for the moment.
So for example, the main IDs are the numeric identifiers - should these be used?
And I have split the descriptions - I think that was sort of intended.
the See xxx also get their own entries, which seems strange.
I haven't put any seeAlso in - the see alsos are still in the text.
I did a bit of sameAs to dbpedia.

But there is a start there, and I would be happy to get any feedback about whether this is worth it and suggestions for improvements.


I was a bit surprised to find things like Sindice and other specific services in there, but it all seems useful.
However, if they are useful, would it not also be useful to have sameas.org?


A few things about the web page I noticed and remembered to write down:
Sometimes there is a space or a period in an anchor.
Target is "blank" (no _) in 55, 93
I think 67 is missing the target.
91 missing ]

Now that it done, it is easy to produce a version as LOD using SKOS.  I'll suggest it to the newly formed Open Data Directory Community Group as we can easily publish the glossary as LOD on w3.org namespace. If people agree, I'll commit to doing it in July.

>> Hi,
>> On behalf of the editors, I'm pleased to announce the publication of the peer-reviewed Linked Data Glossary published as a W3C Working Group Note effective 27-June-2013.[1]  
>> We hope this document serves as a useful glossary containing terms defined and used to describe Linked Data, and its associated vocabularies and best practices for publishing structured data on the Web.  
>> The LD Glossary is intended to help foster constructive discussions between the Web 2.0 and 3.0 developer communities, encouraging all of us appreciate the application of different technologies for different use cases.  We hope the glossary serves as a useful starting point in your discussions about data sharing on the Web.
>> Finally, the editors are grateful to David Wood for contributing the initial glossary terms from Linking Government Data, (Springer 2011). The editors wish to also thank members of the Government Linked Data Working Group with special thanks to the reviewers and contributors: Thomas Baker, Hadley Beeman, Richard Cyganiak, Michael Hausenblas, Sandro Hawke, Benedikt Kaempgen, James McKinney, Marios Meimaris, Jindrich Mynarz and Dave Reynolds who diligently iterated the W3C Linked Data Glossary in order to create a foundation of terms upon which to discuss and better describe the Web of Data.
