Manu,

First let me say congrats - very clean and to the point!

Second, we might want to start gathering interviews at our Wiki? I currently
know of two, yours and mine from last year [1].

I'd not claim that I'd be able to do it better, but there are movements in
the linked data domain which more and more see RDFa as being *the* preferred
deployment mechanism for it. I've blogged about it in early 2008 [2] and,
given there is a possibility, would be delighted to talk about this very
topic.

Cheers,
      Michael
