Re: my post yesterday saying I was unsure if the VIAF text mining approach to incorporating Wikipedia links within their records was Linked Data.  There’s a good little conversation over at the LOD-LAM blog which elucidated the difference for me.  They say it better than I can, so go have a look-see.  The money quotation, ” Linked Data favors “factoids” like date-and-place-of-birth, while statistical text-mining produces (at least in this case) distributions interpretable as “relationship strength”.”
