Great news! Manning's publisher and Webmaster helped us to publish some Linked Data about the book on Manning's site. In my opinion, that is much, much better than doing it ourselves on a separate site.

There is a now an RDF icon on:
http://manning.com/dwood/
Â…that links to:
http://manning.com/dwood/LinkedData.ttl

We will continue to build out the Linked Data as the book progresses. Suggestions for content welcome.

Many thanks to the people at Manning for making this happen.

Regards,
Dave

Re: Linked Data now available for the book!
Hi David

This is really cool. However I have one suggestion. Currently it looks like the graph describes a page and not the actual book. Or maybe a bit of both. In other word the identifier and representation is kind of mixed.

Would it be appropriate to change the appropriate triples into something like the following?

<http://manning.com/dwood#book> a biblio:Book
; foaf:page "http://manning.com/dwood"
; dcterms:hasPart <http://www.manning.com/dwood#chapter1> .

<http://www.manning.com/dwood#chapter1> a biblio:Chapter
; dcterms:isPartOf <http://manning.com/dwood#book>
; <http://dbpedia.org/property/download> "http://www.manning.com/dwood/LinkedData_MEAP_ch1.pdf"

I find this more inline with actual Linked Data patterns. What do you think?

Regards,
Tom

Hi Tom,

Sorry I missed your message earlier! You are right and I have updated the file and submitted it to Manning's webmaster for republication. Thanks for catching those mistakes.

Dave
