Hi Dominic,

I guess that it was with the LOD *cloud* that you had issues. It looks a bit severe, but I think I understand the motivations: if the cloud admitted isolated nodes, it would have many of them, and that would look weird... But of course that does not make your contribution less interesting. On the contrary, the BL work has incredible potential for our domain!
Btw let me know if you're interested in links with data.europeana.eu. We can maybe try something...



PS: I'm copying the email to the LOD-LAM list: I suppose some people will be interested to continue the discussion with you there!

> +1 (best I can do).  FWIW, the day buying your way in ceases to be the certain method of acceptance will be a very good day for all.

> We are currently working with other museums aligning our catalogue data using the CIDOC-CRM ontology. We can now run single federated queries based on semantic alignment without the need to insert specific linking triples. When we applied to advertise our site on the LOD cloud we were turned down because we hadn’t inserted specific links to other data sources. I realise that I could just stuff in a few links to Dbpedia to get accepted - but given that we can harmonise data to a very high degree with another open CRM RDF data source perhaps we should still be allowed formal acceptance to the open data community.
