Is data sharing the privilege of a few? Bringing Linked Data to those without the Web

Is data sharing the privilege of a few? Bringing Linked Data to those without the Web

This video was recorded at 10th International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC), Bonn 2011. Linked Data has been designed on the basis of the Web of Documents and pushed by individuals with privileged access to Web technologies. As a result, Web hosted applications and data servers have become the de-facto standard for setting up data-sharing platforms. But what about the estimated 4.5 billion underprivileged without access to the Web but with a need and the willingness to share data? This paper calls for taking in account everybody in future design choices for Linked Data. We claim that \Web-free" publication is possible, and beneficial, for Linked Open Data everywhere - even without access to the Web.
