> The phrase "Linked Data" is used here idiosyncratically to refer to a data integration
paradigm across the Web. The term was coined by Tim Berners-Lee in 2006, and it is based on
four very simple principles which basically describe recommended best practices for exposing,
sharing, and connecting pieces of data, information, and knowledge on the Semantic Web using
URIs and the RDF technology stack. Therefore Linked Data is about using the Web to connect
related data that wasn't previously linked, or using the Web to lower the barriers to linking
data currently linked using other methods.
