Melvin,

You can deploy Linked Data with ease. The following distractions no 
longer apply:

1. domain name ownership
2. dns server access and privileges
3. http server access and privileges
4. URIs used to denote entities.

I wrote a few DIY-style of Linked Data deployment guides to demonstrate 
the claims I make above. There are no reasons for us to not dog-food 
Linked Data, instinctively circa. 2012. Once folks get comfortable with 
the DIY deployment approach they'll be much better placed to appreciate 
the productivity oriented virtues of Linked Data tools.
