Olaf has brought a good question to the table. I would assume that  
Linked Data is not well known in the "web 2.0" community, IMO.  
Furthermore, this is somethig that I personally experience everyday  
with the community of developers in Austin. That is why we have  
started a sig group: semantic web Austin (www.semanticwebaustin.org)

I'm going to take this opportunity to share with everybody here that  
Tom Heath will be coming to Austin next month and delivering a  
tutorial on Linked data, specially for those developers who are not  
aware of it.

So maybe we can't answer Olaf's question yet. But I know that there is  
a list somewhere of commercial applications that are using/consuming  
Linked Data (can somebody point us to the link?) I would sugget that  
this would indicate the awareness of developers  and companies about  
Linked Data
