A sort of vertical cross section of an overview of what the web should look like from HTTP & URIs to GRDDL & RDF. Oh, and there's a pretty graph at the bottom. "This finding describes how
document formats, markup conventions, attribute values, and other data formats can be designed to facilitate the deployment of self-describing, Web-grounded Web content."

"This is an experimental service that makes the Library of Congress Subject Headings available as linked-data using the SKOS vocabulary. The goal of lcsh.info is to encourage experimentation and use
of LCSH on the web with the hopes of informing a similar effort at the Library of Congress to make a continually updated version available. More information about the Linked Data effort can be found
on the W3C Wiki."

Interview with Ben Adida on RDFa: "...RDFa is ready. It has just been approved by the W3C as a Candidate Recommendation, with the specific text of the specification and a brand new Primer published
on June 20th. Y!: What can I do with RDFa? BA: You can tell the world what various components on your web page mean by marking up things like: The title of a photo Your name and contact information
The license under which you're distributing your latest MP3 The ingredients of a cooking recipe The price of an item A gene on which you recently wrote a paper ... Anything that you want to make more

Lots of links to tools to help visualize RDF graphs. Referenced tools aren't necessarily restricted to visualizing RDF graphs -- at least some visualize plain old graphs like GraphViz (Yay for

How to use FOAF and OpenID together and how DIG used that as a basis for commenting on their blog.

I've updated my homepage by moving stuff about me onto a separate About
page. Creating the About page was the perfect opportunity
to get FoaF
, a machine readable way of describing yourself and your friends, off my to do list. I have a base FoaF
file to which I add friends, projects, and accounts from delicious
using an XSLT
. This produces the FoaF XML
resource on which I use another XSLT to convert into HTML
and produce the About page.
I should also mention a few FoaF pages I found useful in doing this:
FOAF Vocabulary Specification - The standard on which I based my XSLT to add in info from delicious.
FoaF Explorer - Turns any RDF XML FOAF resource into a webpage with links to the other people, projects, etc mentioned in the FOAF file.
FoaF-a-Matic - I used this to produce my base FoaF file.
RDF Validator - This is the closest thing I could find for validation. It does RDF in general but unfortunately not FoaF specifically. I found two
links to sites that are down or dead that claimed to do what I actually wanted.

A FOAF browser. It turns FOAF descriptions into HTML with links to those things described in the FOAF including links to other FOAF descriptions transformed in the same fashion.

Notes on using XSLT on FOAF XML files. Apparently its not super simple due to the various equivalent ways of representing the same RDF in XML.
