Free linked data book by Tom Heath and Chris Bizer

March 2nd, 2011

Congratulations to Tom Heath and Christian Bizer on the publication of their new book, Linked Data: Evolving the Web into a Global Data Space. It’s published by Morgan & Claypool in the series Synthesis Lectures on the Semantic Web: Theory and Technology edited by Jim Hendler and Frank van Harmelen.
Linked Data: Evolving the Web into a Global Data Space

“This book provides a conceptual and technical introduction to the field of Linked Data. It is intended for anyone who cares about data – using it, managing it, sharing it, interacting with it – and is passionate about the Web. We think this will include data geeks, managers and owners of data sets, system implementors and Web developers. We hope that students and teachers of information management and computer science will find the book a suitable reference point for courses that explore topics in Web development and data management. Established practitioners of Linked Data will find in this book a distillation of much of their knowledge and experience, and a reference work that can bring this to all those who follow in their footsteps.”

More importantly, we should all thank them and Morgan & Claypool for making a free HTML version available on the Web.
