The list might be interested in a prototype application built by Steve Peters that visualises and links up data on:

- the English Indices of Multiple Deprivation from http://opendatacommunities.org (which I was involved with)
- schools (from the data.gov.uk Edubase dataset)
- councillors (from OpenlyLocal)
- MPs (from theyworkforyou)

helped also by other APIs including Mapit, Geonames, Google maps...

It's one of the nicest examples I've seen of this kind of mashup and shows off what it means to be truly linked.  It uses capital letters Linked Data where appropriate and available, but also pulls in stuff from all kinds of other APIs too.
