Thanks Elena.  I'm a little firewall issue at the moment and the link is not working for me.
I like the SmartCities idea because for certain kinds of data, weather, sunshine and some others, the ability to triangulate, rather than link is crucial.http://www.rustprivacy.org/2012/toward/
For example, if you look at the charts (bottom of the pages) for London and Madrid it is easy to see that - except for the increased danger with travel in twilight - the Siesta is just an alternate cultural adaptation to the work-day and not some sort of moral lapse or character flaw some would want it to be.

I think the "games" are very helpful for geo classification.  Meta data links are a monte carlo integration.  The further you step back to include more identifiers the less discriminating the identifiers become, and some may be ignored, or replaced with an unlinked generic substitution.  The worldview of a Football Fan and a Government Policy Wonk don't begin the same, but they can end with the same organization.

There is also work done by UPM in Madrid on validating links between geospatial data sets using human computation

http://oegdev.dia.fi.upm.es:8080/sameAs/ (just pick a random user
    id, and a data set).

                  you never know how things will develop, look at the
                  explosion of minecraft.  Also written by one of the
                  top linked data experts in the world ... so you can
                  only hope! :)
