I find my self in 100% agreement with the above, Kingsley. Looks like 
we're making progress. :)

I don't think "Linked Data" is a hot buzz phrase - hardly anyone in the 
Web Developer public knows what Linked Data is or does. We didn't pick 
the name because it was catchy, we picked it because it seemed to be the 
best two words at the time. Now we have found better words and better 
definitions, so we'll use those instead.

I agree. Maybe we have some basic definitions now that we didn't have 
when we started. Let's try finalizing these definitions tomorrow and see 
if we can use them going forward.
