Continuing from my last post, here are some links to old posts of mine 
re.,  item above:    (02)

-- Collection of posts where I seek to distinguish basic triples 
patterns with URI from RDF narrative overeach etc..    (06)

I am a strong opponent of the Linked Data == RDF meme. This anomaly is 
tantamount to attempting to carve out an island (by hand) from the vast 
continent we know as the computer science continuum.    (07)

Using Links as a mechanism for whole data representation via 
de-referenacable URIs i.e., enabling application of the old Linked Data 
Structures at InterWeb scales is at best orthogonally related to RDF.    (08)
