It will crash again if you insist on calling this a "Mash-up" when in 
fact it is a "Mesh-up" :-)

LOD enables the production Data Meshes exposed via Web Pages that expose 
the Data behind the Mesh. Mash-ups on the other hand, expose the code 
used to perform the brute-force mashing of unstructured data which 
ultimately has limited value i.e. multiple views of the same data isn't 
easily achievable since application logic still holds the data captive :-)

I am back in the U.S.

It was great to meet you in person!

Safe journey back to the UK!
