  26. 26. Linked data • “There are data in every aspect of our lives, every aspect of work and pleasure, and it's not just about the number of places where data comes, it's about connecting it together. And when you connect data together, you get power in a way that doesn't happen just with the web, with documents. You get this really huge power out of it. So, we're at the stage now where we have to do this.” - Sir Tim Berners-Lee (TED Conference, 2009) http://tinyurl.com/bxua4r
