Europeana have launched a video. An excellent short (03:42) video animation explaining what Linked Open Data is and why it’s a good thing, both for users and for data providers.
It’s purpose is to support their publication of a Linked Open Data representation of their cultural heritage descriptive assets and aggregation of descriptions from their contributing organisations. I will cover the ramifications and benefits of this elsewhere.
For now, checkout the video and drop it in to your favourites ready to send to anyone who asks the what is Linked Data question.
