Today the effort of publishing
Linked Data far exceeds the payback for data owners
We need to reach a critical mass of Linked Data to make publishing sustainable and rewarding
The obstacles to publishing:
Why shoud I do it?
What should my data look like?
What tools should I use?
How do I know I'm doing it right?
Data Incubator seeks to organise community expertise to remove these obstacles
<li>Website and use of dataincubator.org subdomains
<li>Google code project and mailing list
<li>Talis Platform for hosting conversions
<li>Scraping and conversion scripts
<li>Identifying cross linking opportunities
<li>dataincubator.org is a temporary host for converted data. The data needs to end up on the original owner's site
<li>All code, schemas and data to be freely available (public domain if possible)
<li>Use the same tools as the data owner
<li>What datasets are most valuable?
<li>How to convince data owners to adopt the work into their processes?
<li>How to educate about licensing?
<li>How to improve communication and collaboration?
<li>How to best demonstrate value of Linked Data back to original data owners?
<li>How to recruit more volunteers?
