I prefer Linked Data as a term (I've never met anyone who understands what the Semantic Web is outside of people who are actually creating it whereas Linked Data is self-explanatory, at least in terms of getting over the first hurdle), but does Linked Data have close enough to the same meaning to satisfy everyone?

Given that the semantic-web@w3.org<mailto:semantic-web@w3.org> email list has served the community
very well, I think it would be helpful for continuity if a Community
Group could take over the existing email list.  Is this possible?  And
if so, does this mean that we should now create such a community group?

My one hesitation in continuing with the existing list is that the
choice of the name "Semantic Web" has long been recognized as a
marketing mistake, so perhaps it is time to say goodbye to it.  "Linked
Data" is a substantially better term.
