Linked data is rapidly becoming an important mechanism to expose structured data in the web. The ability to interlink data sets from different providers using standard description vocabularies and the same data model opens new possibilities in the way these data can be used. Despite of its growth, linked data principles have not found yet widespread application in the design of data APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) for web applications. The lack of a write support for linked data repositories, the barrier imposed by the required technological change and the immature state of client and server semantic infrastructure are some of the main causes for this lack of adoption.
