Dear Hugh,

o linkeddata.org could feed off a subset of semanticweb.org, by re-skinning

o linkeddata.org might simply lead to semanticweb.org


I like the strict separation between the two sites, I feel it should remain
this way. We all agree that LOD belongs under the SW umbrella, but it's a
small subset of SW, so definitely needs its own contextual domain. The
separation needs to be made clear for newcomers, so mashing these two
domains together isn't going to help them.

I wonder if this could be our chance to really shine and show off the
benefits behind LOD. I agree with Kingsley and Jürgen that
linkeddata.orgshould be powered by the LOD cloud itself. I am just not
sure I understand
all the jargon they are throwing at it, but it feels like the right way.

Luca
