When someone posts an technology announcement to a Linked Data oriented 
forum isn't is reasonable to assume said announcement would be Linked 
Data related?

All I sought was Linked Data only to get push-back about lack of demand 
for Linked Data. The principles that define the Linked Data meme are 
crystal clear. Thus, I would expect anyone announcing a product on this 
forum to at least do so knowing that adherence to those principles would 
be the very first thing members would test.

What do you mean by "actual demand?"

In my case, I was expecting a Linked Data URI, and I don't think the 
demand for that is a subject of useful debate, over here.
