    • shared innovationIssues, PDF through Microdata• Structure, parseability – How do we validate what were extracting? – Is there an underlying data model?• How do we know what the data means?• How do you relate parts of the data together?• How do consumers discover related data?
    • shared innovationData on the Web != A Web of Data
    • shared innovationIf there are no links, its not a Web!
