OCLC's Hanging Together blog has just concluded a really interesting series of posts analyzing the responses they got to a recent survey on implementation of linked data projects. If you're at all interested in the semantic web, you really should check out the series:
Many thanks to all of you who participated in the international linked data survey for implementers or disseminated the survey link! I’ve been summarizing the results in a series of HangingTogether posts, which just concluded today:
- Linked Data Survey results 1 – Who’s doing it
- Linked Data Survey results 2 – Examples in production
- Linked Data Survey results 3 – Why and what institutions are consuming
- Linked Data Survey results 4 – Why and what institutions are publishing
- Linked Data Survey results 5 – Technical details
- Linked Data Survey results 6 - Advice from the implementers
At the end of the last post is a link to the spreadsheet with the compilation of all survey responses (minus the contact information which we promised respondents we’d keep confidential). Feel free to apply your own filters to the responses, or look at them more closely.
We also updated OCLC Linked Data Research activity page to include the link to the above spreadsheet and the hangingtogether blog series (the sixth one to be added soon) so they’re all in one place.
