Tim Berners Lee joins Hans Rosling in his initiative to make data accessible for everybody. While Hans Rolsing’s starting point is getting data in order to rise awarness and understanding in social affairs Tim Berner Lee’s starting point is his engagement for a semantic web and for linking data – not only linking documents like in the traditional web.

At TED 2009 Tim Berners Lee made a speech about linked data, referred to Hans Rosling and explained what linked data are and could be in the future.
