I know this brings up the old "URI crisis"-question (to which I don't  
really have an answer), but what exactly does the statement above mean:

1.) Damian is interested in RDF
2.) Damian is interested in the Wikipedia page about RDF
3.) both

The first option is probably more likely, but the second one is not  
ruled out at all. Humans may be able to infer which one is meant, but  
generally this is not possible. As I said, I don't have a solution  
here, but I thought I would point it out anyway.

Apart from that, I think linking to Wikipedia is great!
