OK But it would be useful to your poll to know in advance which target countries are of most interest to you.

E.g. start wit a select group of countries in which the ICT issues I mentioned are not or hardly relevant.

www.terena.org should give you a good idea of where to start.

I DID see the first line, but correct me if I am wrong, what is more important to adoption of Linked Data, the purely technical aspects or the broader issues of the underlying infrastructures?  E.g. Dublin Core addresses metadata issues which have obvious links to the issues I stated earlier.

Maybe, but for now, I want to focus the poll on specific issues
    affecting those that are in a position to try or want to try. As for
    the issue with ICT challenged countries, I am looking into specific
    initiatives targeting such regions e.g., linked open data and
    government etc.. ..
