After the hot and tekky class/role debate, something 
to cool down:
 
How would you explain RDFa to someone that is not
into it, in 10sec?
 
I guess my take to give a not-so-tekky answer would be:
 
Imagine a magic ink on a paper. With a special kind
of glasses you can actually see the things written
on the paper with the magic ink.
 
HTML is the paper and RDFa is both the magic ink and
the special kind of glasses.
 
Any other try?
 
Cheers,
       Michael
