I like this one too. However, I feel there are still two aspects to  
SWUI: one is how people interact with data (covered by the current  
title) and the other is how the evolving web of data supports people- 
to-people interaction. This is not covered by the current title, but  
is increasingly the spirit in which most Web 2.0 sites operate and I  
feel is also a necessary direction for SWUI.  Many people are  
interested in better interaction with data, but many many people are  
also interested in richer interaction with each other, supported by  
richer SW data. One only needs consider the discussion and community  
features on many Web 2.0 sites and the immensely popular social  
networking sites. However, this might be too broad for the scope of  
this workshop. :) Any thoughts?
