Hi Paul,

thanks for pointing this out. I must say it is one of many...

I think we should clearly come up with some text that clarifies this
percieved controversy between 'Semantic Web' and the 'semantic web'. In
my view, all these go into the same direction, namely in what we might
call a 'Web of Data'; the rest is only a technological difference that
we may have to bridge here and there. Witness the GRDDL evolution that
will bind the microformat world to RDF...

To be discussed at the F2F, that is for sure...

Thanks again

Ivan
