Clearly an important topic. I would like to openly discuss what I see as frustrating disconnects across:

1. Entity Relationship Model as the vehicle for unified views over disparate data -- by exploiting Entity Relationship Semantics
2. Big Data -- the latest and greatest moniker/meme hybrid associated with challenge of exponentially growing data volume, velocity, and variety
3. Linked Data -- topic of a meme by TimBL that describes a principled approach to Webby structured data construction and publication to the Web (i.e., how to make Webby data objects)
4. RDF -- enhancement to Entity Relationship Model enhanced with explicit machine comprehensible Entity Relationship Semantics
5. Linked Open Data Cloud -- massive collection of Webby data objects (resources) constructed and published in line with TimBL's Linked Data meme
6. The Semantic Web Project/Vision -- the Web as a Big Data cloud comprised of RDF based Webby data objects .

Discussion question: do the points outlined above effectively connect the dots between today's Big Data meme and the Semantic Web Project's vision, effectively? I assume others on this list find these items artificially disconnected?
