I've not seen anything, but if the W3C has resources for another
Education and Outreach group in the near future, I'd suggest such a
study as a deliverable.

As far as I can tell there is awareness in some of the scientific
communities, though as a message for the Web at large linked data
seems still to be be limited to a subset of the semweb community.
Having said that, places like Read/WriteWeb and programmableweb.com do
expose running applications to the Web 2.0 community. Also RDFa
deployment seems to be growing in general, and that's good data.
