I usually get a "aha" moment with an animation I created to show that an 
integrated resource is more than the sum of its parts. The "aha" slide 
is attached is for a paper that was just accepted for presentation at 
Medinfo next summer (much less ambitious than the demo, but well 
received so far).

Sahoo S, Zeng K, Bodenreider O, Sheth AP.
 From "glycosyltransferase" to "congenital muscular dystrophy": 
Integrating knowledge from NCBI Entrez Gene and the Gene Ontology.
Medinfo 2007:(accepted).

(If somebody has a need for the RDF version of Entrez Gene we created, 
we are of course willing to share.)
