It is not that the use cases and case study are not interesting pieces 
of information for business people or even researchers and developers, 
but I don't think they are really suitable for such a flyer. First of 
all, the list of use cases and case studies is quite long. If we need to 
choose, how should we do that? I mean, if we choose the use case 
provided by company A and not the one provided by company B, we might 
give a wrong (implicit) message. On the other hand, the 4 community 
projects found (a kind of) consensus in the SWEO IG, since the whole 
group voted for choosing them. Apart from this, the community projects 
show a couple of concrete usages of SW technologies and the business 
people need just to recognize the possible impact of SW technologies on 
the actual or future developments within their companies. IMHO, this 
flyer should have the message: SW is not complicated, it is useful, it 
is part of the future of Web's development, and should give some hints 
to SW technologies. The idea is to make (business) people curious and 
determine them to want to know more about SW technologies.

However, I don't want to say that my viewpoints on this issue are the 
'right ones' ... We, the authors of the first version of the flyer 
(Norbert Eisinger, Dunja, and myself) are open to suggestions for 
improving it.

We will change the layer cake and the corresponding short explanation of 
the involved layers, thank you for pointing us to this version!

We will try to be on the call on Monday.
