Segala is a very close partner of Glaxstar [1] - the company that maintains
spreadfirefox.com. They're building our Firefox extension [2] that reads
RDF-CL [3] and allows users to prioritise search results based on sites that
are labelled using this method. 

So, if there's anything I can do to help just shout as we can add anything
semantic based to the extension. The extension is signed by VeriSign and is
therefore one of the very few that can be 'trusted' technically.

The domain spreadingthesemanticweb.com (along with net and org) have
been registered with the idea of a "Spread The Semantic Web" campaign.

It is desired to be a community site, so I would happily pass the
domain into a non-profit state.

I am in an email conversation with the creator of "Spread Firefox"
http://www.spreadfirefox.com/ , Chris Messina, soliciting his help.

Here is an article on the background of the campaign.

While it would not be as successful in the same way (by switching user
agents you have an immediate benefit) , this can help in Education and
