A few things:

[1] Open Source != Open Data -- lots of Open Source projects don't work 
with structured data based on open standards (e.g., Linked Open Data).
[2] Linked Open Data is the atom, not Open Source application code.

I think your value proposition might be:

Decentralized data spaces for broad collaboration that's built around 
open standards for structured data representation, integration, and 

Interaction includes loosely coupled read-write operations, based on 
open standards e.g., those emerging from the RWW effort, which are all 
based on existing (and emerging) standards from various W3C communities 
and workgroups.
