Great! Another success story powered by Linked Data technologies. BestBuy is a trailblazer like The New York Times. They both publish data on the Web using W3C recommendations. However, I quickly compare the metadata available in the RDF resources and the ones available in the HTML representation. RDF still miss a lot of valuable information. The type of product which is available in the breadcrumb trail of the HTML page is not in the RDF. Same thing for the matadata available in the product overview tab. In order to get this information, any integration of BestBuy linked data still needs to parse the HTML. This is an anti pattern that should be avoided. Adding these metadata (at least the product type) to the RDF would immediately improve the value of BestBuy data. Linked Data consumers and integrators look forward for this improvement. ;-)
