You already know how I share my work and try to encourage others to give 
it a try to do the same. I don't think that's sufficient to win this 
tough battle.

SW/LD venues and supervisors are not on board. Obeying publisher's 
demands and sticking to classical ways is the easy route. Why bother 
right? Most of them neither bother to change or even encourage others to 
take a forward step.

If research venues simply accepted documents to be submitted using 
native Web technologies, we'd see things changing hopefully in the right 
direction (here is me with wishful thinking).

They are keep using that [Linked Data] word, but I do not think it means 
what they think it means.

Perhaps the incentive to change needs to be worked on.
