How about being more ambitious?  In the above, change "a large group of *

That would get you Social Media Meets Linked Data.

Here's step in that direction

There's also a short paper


www.reengineeringllc.com/A_Wiki_for_Business_Rules_in_Open_Vocabulary_Executable_English.pdf

and the technology is online at the same site.
