PublishMyData Day 1
PublishMyData, our Linked Data publishing platform, has been live for half a day now and nothing has broken yet, so we’re calling Day 1 a success :-)
It’s also been great to get some positive feedback from the twittersphere.
There’s a long way to go with the product, but we’re aiming to connect two pieces of the linked data puzzle:
- make it easier for data owners to publish their information as linked data, by looking after the infrastructure and technical details
- and help developers and regular web users to use the data, by providing the kind of access methods and visualisations that make their life easy
We want to see lots more linked open data out there, but to make that happen the data owners have to get tangible benefits with low risk and low cost. The benefits only come when people use the data, so we have to take active steps to help people use it.
