This is the third part of a series (part 1, part 2, part 3) on the eXperience API, and in particular, linked data. "Linked Data, frequently described as "the Semantic Web done right" by the Inventor of the World Wide Web Tim Berners-Lee, has emerged as the de facto standard for sharing semantic data on the web," writes the author. "Scholars doing social network analytics found that putting object nodes together with learner nodes can better reveal how interactions between persons happen." This is an important concept, because it changes out way of thinking about resources. For example, instead of relying on their properties and metadata alone, we can begin to classify them according to when and where they are used. This information is captured as part of activity data, which is the foundation for the eXperience API.
