As we begin modeling and migrating our data to work in a Linked Data environment, we need to avoid simply building new silos with a trendy new facade. It is important to think carefully about how our data models fit into the larger cloud of data. We must consider what is necessary for us to link to and reuse other data sources and for others to reuse ours. How do we balance the control we want over our own vocabularies and models while also not alienating ourselves from the larger web? What compromises do we need to make? What effect will schema.org have? After a short introduction to RDF and the concepts of Linked Data, we will explore some potential snags and solutions as well as datasets and technologies that might influence some of our decisions.
