How about: we can make Linked Data graphs using a JSON based syntax. We 
can use JSON to serialize Linked Data graphs. In both cases, Zero 
mention of RDF. At the end of the day, RDF is really an orthogonal 
matter re. Linked Data. There is nothing about Linked Data that's 
specific to RDF (syntax, model that underlies sytnax, serialization 
formats). There have and swill always be many mechanisms for expressing 
and serializing EAV/SPO based graphs.
