There is another benefit in addition to, "skills should I cultivate." There

Putting Linked Data in a job title is something far more significant.
Since code4lib is not always boast4lib-ish, it would be too great a loss to
not see the evidence of financial investment by institutions for things
like the Hydra stack (Solr, Fedora, Blacklight...) over the last few years.
When your HR department says you are building an RDF-based triple store, I
am pretty certain you will be doing it.
