Hello,

This is true, we do link to bbc.co.uk/music/artists in our  
foaf.qdos.com FOAF builder, which allows people to create/edit their  
FOAF profile (which we either host [as linked data] or export to  
webdav,flat file, etc to be hosted at the user's preferred location).  
But, I am guessing this particular instance of linkage would fall  
under the umbrella FOAF bubble in the cloud. The QDOS -> dbpedia links  
are specific to the qdos.com/user part of QDOS which we use to  
maintain a list of people (~100,000), and their online presence.
