hi,

+1 (actually +a couple more) for your initiatives.


i think, however that there's one important point missing : 
why [1], "why should one do something like that"

this [2] shows quite well, why i'm using linked data. i'm just a one man
company, but i'm

- NOT going to have multiple lists of my personal, profile
- NOT going to have multiple lists of customers, i'm dealing with
- NOT going to have multiple lists of terms, i use
- NOT going to have multiple lists of locations, i need
...
- NOT going to have multiple lists of anything

- NOT going to have multiple formats, i have to write an own access api
for
- NOT going to write an own frontend for every dataformat in use.

what i DO gonna have is the possibility to connect and enrich all data,
not only within my domains, but also to other data hubs.

note : i started my programming career with one very big austrian
company. one task was to find out how much is company "xyz" buying.
however company "xyz" was in the database as "x y z", "XyZ", "xy Z",
"xYz"... that's not going to happen to me...
