It was Dunja Ewinger who said at the right time 03.07.2007 16:46 the

proposal 1.

the circuit board of 2 is uncorrelated with the semantic web, whereas 
the WWW+semantics triggers something.
(to trigger more: I would put web 2.0+semantics :-)

+1

btw: another hot story could go like this:
"Mr Smith wants to do a mashup of google earth with flickr, but does not 
know APIs. But he knows SPARQL and RDF, the W3C standards to integrate 
data on the web...."

+1 the layer cake sums up many things and its a good meme (people may
