- Knows that anything can be named with Uniform Resource Identifiers (URIs), such as agents, places, events, artifacts, and concepts.
- Understands that a "real-world" thing may need to be named with a URI distinct from the URI for information about that thing.
- Knows the "five stars" of Open Data: put data on the Web, preferably in a structured and preferably non-proprietary format, using URIs to name things, and link to other data.
- Knows the primary organizations related to Linked Data standardization.
- Understands the difference between SQL query language (which operates on database tables) and SPARQL (which operates on RDF graphs).
