Totally agree. It is huge. Of course. We all agree. But we are a "Linked
Open Data" community not an "Open Data" community. So as a LOD community we
should raise more awareness and NOT be satisfied with this data just being
open (3rd star?), we should strive for better data using URIs and
Interlinks (5 stars). Not being satisfied with something will raise more
awareness and convince people to use what we are preaching!
