Atomic Data: a modular specification for making the semantic web more practical

Joep Meindertsma

The vision for a semantic web is over 20 years old, yet so little of our internet is currently using linked data. Where did it go wrong, and what can we do to revive this dream? Atomic Data is a modular specification that aims to make the semantic web achievable again through a developer-friendly ecosystem of tools that enable high data interoperability and return ownership back to the user.
