Hi,
It is possibly useful to sound a bit of a warning about the link (sic)
between Linking, Open, Data and RDF.
So the LOD diagram captures some of this stuff, but there is plenty of other
stuff which is in RDF to Linked Data standards, but doesn't appear because
there are not enough links to or fro.
Then it is not clear that all the LOD diagram can be classed as Open.
And the idea of having a SPARQL endpoint with "all the LOD bubbles" is
problematic (even if we wanted such a thing), since harvesting them would be
a serious problem.
Of course, there are partial harvests, such as the Virtuoso cloud.

Best
Hugh
