For what it's worth, I am quietly and privately experimenting with
integrating RDF data/SPARQL endpoints into various local and regional
projects, exploring and attempting to find a good model for
integrating with tools people already use for solving real-world
problems (food production being the my current area of focus.)

Also, of course, exploring sound use of existing vocabularies, and
when needed, exploring the creation of new vocabularies via
http://neologism.deri.ie/ tool. The goal is to start building public
data of many kinds around local and regional food production in the
midwest USA region that I am in now. I think that eventually
publishing this data will lead to the possibility of participating in
experiments in economics around the data. Previous work in this space
has taught me the lesson that many of you are reflecting in this
thread: it all starts with having the actual data. People need to get
it published in an interoperable way. Then, the door is open to
explore multiple plausible outcomes in reality. So, now, I am quietly
and carfefully focusing on that data. Thanks for all of your  work and
general advice. I am looking forward to ramping all of this up in the
coming months.
