RE: New LOD Cloud - Please send us links to missing data sources

Hi Chris,
Could you also add in ? This is a linked data site hosted by the University of Southampton for Ordnance Survey administrative geography of Britain. Currently there are links via Coreferences to Geonames (as the instances are related, but not semantically equivalent), and the dataset is also used by John Goodwin's Southampton Pub Guide via the "is located in" property. We're going to be adding more links to other data sets soon!

Hi Chris,

A couple of additions/questions:

- The links between Revyu and the SW Conference Corpus are two-way
- Should Ontoworld be renamed
- Revyu and have two-way links
- Is the BBC stuff going to be added?

Looking forward to the new diagram. If it was available before Friday
that would be great, as I'll be giving a talk and would love to show
the enlarged cloud ;)
