Recently, Linked Data and Web APIs have emerged as the preferred means of exposing data and Web application functionality. In this paper we argue that service systems should be adapted in the light of both trends. In particular we believe that i) common means for discovering and interacting with Web services and Web APIs are necessary, and that ii) we should bridge the gap between services and linked data both by supporting the publication of services as linked data and by enabling the processing of linked data by services. We show a set of technologies we have devised towards this goal.
