We outline a relationship between Linked Data and the Internet of Services which we have been exploring recently. The Internet of Services provides a mechanism for combining elements of a Future Internet through standardized service interfaces at multiple levels of granularity. Linked Data is a lightweight mechanism for sharing data at web-scale which we believe can facilitate the management and use of service-based components within global networks.
