Thing Described By

Thing Described By http://thing-described-by.org/ (also http://t-d-b.org) is a 303-redirect service.

It does not address the problem of setting the content type correctly, but it *does* provide an easy way to generate 303 redirects, in conformance with "Cool URIs for the Semantic Web": http://www.w3.org/TR/cooluris/#r303gendocument and "Best Practice Recipes for Publishing RDF Vocabularies": http://www.w3.org/TR/swbp-vocab-pub/#redirect, also "Architecture of the World Wide Web, Volume One" http://www.w3.org/TR/webarch/.

Using this approach , then instead of writing a URI such as

http://example/mydata.rdf

you would write it as

http://t-d-b.org?http://example/mydata.rdf

and if that URI is dereferenced, the 303-redirect service will automatically return a 303 redirect to

http://example/mydata.rdf
