Hi Olaf,

I am not sure whether you only want to know the reaction to LD by 
developers only. Our projects have been supporting the needs from users 
who have little or no techy background. They quite buy the idea of 
Semantic Web, for making it easier to mash up datasets, technically 
speaking. However, we are still looking for compelling cases to show 
that there are things that cannot be done without LD. And I would really 
want to know what the LD community feels about how far the LD technology 
is reaching outside the SW community.

Looking forward to SQUIN:-)
