A few tweaks to the above, typed in haste:

Programming is about orchestrated Create, Update, Delete operations 
against Data via Addresses.

Programming languages facilitate the above.

Programming languages interface with host operating systems.

Linked Data is about data representation that leverages "data access by 
reference".

REST is about a form of CRUD orchestration against network addresses 
(URLs), where data representation is negotiable and addresses hackable, 
courtesy of URL abstraction.

REST and Linked Data is a form of Distributed Computing with Data 
Objects that many efforts failed to deliver in the past e.g., CORBA.

It is good old basic stuff but at InterWeb (network) scales.
