Heya Eric:

The main thing you'd want to do would be to make sure URIs like:

returned something useful for both people and machine agents. The
nitty gritty details of how to do this can roughly be found in the
Cool URIs for the Semantic Web [1], or How to Publish Linked Data [2].
A slight variation would be to use something like RDFa [3] to embed
metadata in your HTML docs, or GRDDL [4] to provide a stylesheet to
transform some HTML to RDF.

The end goal of linked data, is to provide contextual links from your
stuff to other resources on the web, aka timbl's rule #4:

  Include links to other URIs. so that they can discover more things. [3]

So for example you might want to assert that:

owl:sameAs < .


dcterms:creator <> .

It's when you link out to other resources on the web that things get
interesting, more useful, and potentially more messy :-) For example
instead of owl:sameAs perhaps an assertion using FRBR or RDA would be
more appropriate.

Thanks for asking the question. The public-lod list [4] at the w3c is
also a really friendly/helpful group of people making data sets
available as linked-data.
