Not me. It is. I just said we don't get it directly (because people are 
persuaded of LOD Principles), but indirectly (because people accept a 
poor imitation).

And people see the value, until we show them otherwise, not from a large 
linked graph, but from private graphs (like the laughably-named 'Open 
Graph').

(Just to be clear: there is a bit of devil's advocacy in my posts - you 
know me - I do believe that there is much that's positive with 
Google/Facebook/Twitter's pushing things forward)
