Have you looked at:
1. http://esw.w3.org/topic/WebID - What, Why, and How of a Personal URI  
(how you make your WebID the conduit disparate data of relevance with 
in-built "Meshing" since "Mashups" should be antithetical to LD)

2. http://esw.w3.org/topic/foaf%2Bssl - addressing non-repudiatable 
identity using LD and SPARQL within existing SSL framework

3. http://esw.w3.org/topic/Rdb2RdfXG/StateOfTheArt - data integration 
across RDBMS, XML, and other Sources
