Please not that this is "in addition" to this being a good thing in
nature ( my point sounded a bit narrow ).
The point is: this event is even more significant than the content itself ;)

Perhaps someone from the community could split markets vertically and
monitor events relevant to each.
This information is really valuable because it helps others trying to
do the same.

Kingsley: Does any of the upper level ontologies or LOD datasets
provide industry sectors with a useful level of granularity?

For example ( copy paste from Yahoo )

(GENERIC)
BANKING & FINANCE
CONSTRUCTION & PROPERTY
CONSUMER GOODS
ENGINEERING
HEALTH
INDUSTRIALS
LEISURE
MEDIA
NATURAL RESOURCES
PUBLIC SECTOR
RETAILING
SUPPORT SERVICES
TECHNOLOGY
TELECOMS
TRANSPORT
UTILITIES

And then serve this up via:

LinkedData.org / showcase / ( FCT browser )

Same thing would apply to the teams behind each project ( via DOAP +
FOAF ). This is to do quick lookups if in need for specific expertise.
