This paper describes All About That (AAT) an experimental prototype system for preserving linked data integrity on the Semantic Web. Link integrity is an open problem on the traditional web that is largely ignored by many since the power of search engines have made locating missing pages or alternate sources of information trivial. On the linked data web search technology is insufficiently mature to perform the same function with the level of effectiveness possible on the hypermedia web. As the very nature of the Semantic Web is interlinked data it is more important than ever that link integrity be preserved if we are to reliably reason across data and build useful applications. To this end a replication and versioning approach based on ideas from the work of Veiga & Ferreira [1,2] is adopted and applied to the Semantic Web to create an experimental prototype. The prototype permits a user to monitor any number of URIs that they are interested in with the software able to produce versions of how the RDF at that URI appeared on a particular date and detail how the RDF has changed over time. 1.
