Linked Open Data

For this week, I found the videos about linked open data really interesting as well as very instructive and accessible. At the same, though, I am still confused about what linked open data exactly is. But, from what I do understand about it, it is really changing how we access information by forming relationships between open data. Another interesting video about linked open data is a TED talk given by Tim Berners-Lee (I have copied it below). This talk is super inspiring! However, linked open data is possible because of good data management practices. Without proper data management, data would not be able to be made open and accessible.
