Idea for Linked Open Data from the US recovery effort

Tim Berners-Lee recently posted an important request for the provision of Linked Open Data from the US recovery effort website Recovery.gov.

The National Dialogue website (set up to solicit ideas for data collection, storage, warehousing, analysis and visualisation; website design; waste, fraud and abuse detection; and other solutions for transparency and accountability) says that for Recovery.gov to be a useful portal for citizens, it “requires finding innovative ways to integrate, track, and display data from thousands of federal, state, and local entities”.

If you support the idea of Linked Open Data from Recovery.gov, you can have a read and provide some justifications on this thread.

(I’ve recently given some initial ideas about how grant feed data could be linked with user contributions in the form of associated threaded discussions on different topics, see picture below, all to be exposed as Linked Open Data using custom schemas plus SIOC and FOAF across a number of agencies / funding programs / websites.)
