JSON-LD became an official Web Standard last week. This is after exactly 100 teleconferences typically lasting an hour and a half, fully transparent with text minutes and recorded audio for every call. There were 218+ issues addressed, 2,000+ source code commits, and 3,102+ emails that went through the JSON-LD Community Group. The journey was a fairly smooth one with only a few jarring bumps along the road. The specification is already deployed in production by companies like Google, the BBC, HealthData.gov, Yandex, Yahoo!, and Microsoft. There is a quickly growing list of other companies that are incorporating JSON-LD. We’re off to a good start.
