We have a project name and vision combo [1], a syntax for expressing 
semantics via directed graphs that's associated with a number 
serialization formats [2], and the product of a specific kind of 
directed graph [3] all conflated for reasons I'll never understand, 
especially as the incoherence resulting from these actions remains the 
biggest source of inertia afflicting all the aforementioned.

Items referenced in the paragraph above:

1. The Semantic Web Project
2. RDF
3. Linked Data .
