We as a community can solve the semantic interoperability issue by reusing existing RDF vocabularies as much as possible. Take Schema.org, for example, as a good starting point.

So publishing linked data is easy but creating applications that make use of it is a completely different kettle of fish and very difficult, particularly in the way I described.

My assumption is that the linked data community is keen to create these user applications and not consign linked data to isolated back end processing jobs and a tool for computer scientists. How do we as a community solve the semantic interoperability issue?

It’s pretty easy to write an XSL stylesheet to convert “records” into RDF/XML, and then write a little M/R job to run the XSL against a big bulk of records to boil it down.

The intellectual challenge is the semantic mapping of idiomatic data into RDF vocabulary terms.

Why are there so few useful linked data applications for general non technical users that provide functions that people need to support and enhance their work and which operate over large amounts of data owned by different organisations with a high degree of semantic interoperability and robustness?
