demo, Linked Data

Linked Data Camp Vienna hacking wrap-up

Jürgen Umbrich and I virtually participated in the LDC09 session regarding datasets dynamics.

Over the past couple of days, we hacked a little demo on a distributed change notification system for Linked Open Data, based on voiD+dady and (a slightly modified version ) of an Atom feed. Here is the overall setup:

In case you want to play around with it yourself, you can check out the source code as well. Feedback and feature requests welcome 😉

  1. I’m not sure I get the point of what it’s about… could you possibly explain that in terms more understandable for the man on the (Linked Data) street ?

    Any example of an ATOM snippet ?

  2. Olivier,

    Glad you asked 😉 So, the overall goal is to enable Linked Data consumers (applications, other data publisher, etc.) to keep track of changes in a LOD dataset. There are a couple of use cases [1], [2] and some proposed solutions in terms of vocabularies and protocols.

    Our idea was: KISS. So, reusing existing technologies as far as possible. So we propose and demoed how to extend Atom to implement the notification mechanism.

    The example Atom snippet (see [3]) looks like:

    <title>update event:1259750391694</title>
    <link rel="alternate" href="" />
    <link rel="data-added" href="" />
    <link rel="data-removed" href="" />
    <summary>1 statements have been added to and 1 statements have been removed from http://ld2sd.deri.org/dady/publisher/test-dataset.rdf </summary>
