The trend for more online linked data becomes stronger. Foreseeing a future where "everything" will be online and linked, we ask the critical question; what is next? We envision that managing, querying and storing large amounts of links and data is far from yet another query processing task. We highlight two distinct and promising research directions towards managing and making sense of linked data. We introduce linked views to help focusing on specific link and data instances and linked history to help observe how links and data change over time.
