Berners-Lee Pushes Linked Data In MIT Course

ErMKutz writes “WWW inventor Tim Berners-Lee is championing linked data — the idea of assigning Web addresses to individual pieces of data to enable more intelligent information searches — much like he did now-ubiquitous Internet standards such as HTML and HTTP. But the ethic hasn’t quite taken off yet, so he and a group of Boston tech and entrepreneurial all-stars are launching an MIT class to teach students linked data mechanics and fast-track the technology to market. They’re combining engineering and entrepreneurial education in the hopes of launching viable linked data businesses or open-source code at the conclusion of the course.” I hope this shows up on OpenCourseWare.
