Obviously I wasn't on the call and don't know what was discussed, but 
some points-

The Linked Data 'movement' started, as I recall, in the use of http: 
URIs as the convention for all RDF resources. By using http:, there's 
implicitly a web page that can be accessed for more information about 
that resource --- a page that can be in RDF format itself.
