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 bene ficial, for Linked Open Data everywhere - even without access to the Web.
