Comment on Just how should we share data on the Web? by Phil Archer

Hi Johann, I can’t agree with your first line. If all we share is metadata describing datasets then all we’re doing is using the Web as a glorified USB stick, i.e. you might just as well send me the data on a stick through the post. To build the Web of data, individual data points need to be addressable on the Web. That’s why structural metadata is just as important as discovery metadata (like the CSV on the Web work) that allows you to interpret a table as a URI set if that’s what you want to do).

Thanks for the pointers, we’ll look at those.

Cheers
