To be more precise, the definitions we have in the Glossary come from this link: http://5stardata.info, which also provide some examples.

> * I've always felt the word "stuff" is too cute...

> 
+1
> ★★ make it available as structured data (e.g., Excel instead of image
> scan of a table)
> 
> * PROPOSE: Publish your data in a common, structured, machine-readable format
> 
+0  because we still need to give examples of structured data… 
> ★★★ use non-proprietary formats (e.g., CSV instead of Excel)
> 
> * I don't think we need to slam M$FT...
> * PROPOSE: Publish your data in a non-proprietary format (e.g. CSV)

+1 as I thing it solves the issue raised by Sandro.
> ★★★★ use URIs to denote things, so that people can point at your stuff
> <= TBL's version
> ★★★★ Published using open standards from the W3C (RDF and SPARQL) <= GLD version

+1 as it is much more explicit
> ★★★★★ link your data to other data to provide context <= TBL's version
> ★★★★★ All of the above and links to other Linked Open Data <= GLD version
>

-1. PROPOSE: All the above and include links (URIs) to other Linked (Open) Data in your published data.

Many thanks for the proposals…
