A quick dump for editorial massaging:

Linked Data , as per TimBL's meme, describes a particular kind of 
resource (or data object). Basically, this resource type exhibits the 
following characteristics:

1. every entity is denoted (named) using a de-referencable URI -- this 
applies to web documents and other entities

2. every URI resolves to structured content representing the resource -- 
name resolution occurs by explicit or implicit indirection such that 
said URI always resolves its descriptor in the form of structured 
(description oriented) content

3. content structure is constrained by the RDF data model (and for those 
with R-D-F reflux condition, its: the EAV model + de-referencable URIs + 
explicit [rather than implicit] semantics)

4. content structure  takes the form entity-attribute-value (EAV) or 
subject-predicate-object (SPO) triple based statements.
