One of the fundamental misconceptions about Linked Data is the 
assumption that Web-scale publication is a complex process, utterly 
beyond the capabilities of end-users that are already capable of 
creating, editing, and saving a document to a local or network drive.

I've written a detailed post [1] showcasing how anyone can publish 
Linked Data via a Turtle document using Web resource storage and sharing 
services provided by the likes of: DropBox, Amazon S3, Box.net, 
Microsoft SkyDrive, Google Drive, and our own ODS-Briefcase (aka. ODrive).

This guide shows how the following items simply never need to show up at 
the front door of Linked Data deployment narratives targeting decision 
makers, end-users, and systems integrators (plumbers who mesh or mash 
components together):

1. content negotiation
2. httpRange-14 and 303 redirection
3. web server administration.

In a nutshell, Linked Data publishing is much easier than HTML 
publishing while also delivering superior benefits re., ability to find 
relevant data, information, and knowledge, with ever increasing 
precision and serendipity.
