Dear David and Kingsley,


Kingsley is right in principle at this time in the technology though, David.  ODBC is widely available, and can be installed automatically by a program that needs it.  So adding web links to spreadsheets in web pages does sound kind of conceptually attractive.  So his statement of the problem is sound, IMHO.  It’s a good idea to ponder. 


Kingsley, do you do that kind of work?  It might be useful to hear more about what services and or products you offer in some way related to that interesting concept you raised?

What does Linked Data do to address the "what is it I'm getting at the other end of this pipe?" issue?


Linking all this stuff together isn't new.  How long has ODBC been around?  At least 20 years?



What does Linked Data add to the challenge of "I wonder what's in this column/field/cell?"


I am assuming:


(1) you (the linker) do not know


(2) you do not have access to the person who does know


(3) the person who does know is likely only partially correct.




SemWeb is looking for a presentation Tuesday.  Can you show how Linked Data resolves this "semantic connectivity" issue?
