Just sent this to the Microformats list, thought some of you on here
might be interested in it:

I've had a hard time explaining what the semantic web is about in a
concise manner over the past several months, so I decided to focus on
answering that for people that don't really know much about the web.

I spent the last couple of days playing around with the video creation
suites in Linux (Blender, Cinelerra, Gimp, xvidcap and a borrowed wacom
tablet).

Here's the result of a couple of hours of mucking about - does this
explain what the semantic web is all about? Is it simple enough? Too
simple? Too long? Too short?

I was thinking of doing something similar for RDFa in the next month or
so and would like some feedback on whether or not that would be helpful.

Happy Holidays :)
