thanks for the paper Tom.


can you please explain what *this *means ? if app can understand data of
unfamilier vocabulary, why it has to understand _any_ of the vocabulary at
the first place ?


*"Data is self-describing. If an application consuming Linked Data
encounters data
described with an unfamiliar vocabulary, the application can dereference the
URIs
that identify vocabulary terms in order to find their definition.*"


thanks
