I think you should be - esp. as you also connect to the BBC linked data with stuff like:

<lastfm:favouriteArtist rdf:resource="http://www.bbc.co.uk/music/artists/e60e1f0b-1e8c-45e7-9d4a-222db9cb34f7#artist"/>

in the FOAF profiles you generate.

Hello,

Having just seen the bigger and better LOD cloud [1]. I was wondering  
whether QDOS should have a link to DBpedia, as we emit owl:sameAs  
relationships from celebs to dbpedia resources: see Barak Obama's  
turtle file [2]. QDOS currently has around 100,000 people, about half  
of which are linked to dbpedia resources.

Cheers,

Mischa
