I just want to point to Peter's blog post which was triggered by and
references the "open" discussion:


Thank you, Peter, couldn't agree more with you.

I myself am very grateful for the OKFN having developed the Open
Knowledge Definition and find it very important in creating a
knowledge ecology where the different parts are legally compatible,
combinable and mixable. Open W3C standards for Linked Data might bring
the corresponding technical compatibility in the future...

All the best
