I wondered if we should rather make one wiki page with many entries - 
then moving one tutorial from one category to another is just a 
copy/paste operation, and we spare a few clicks.
If all together is only 10-30 links and a voting, having them on one 
page is better than many pages, you get an instant overview.

(Danny, please give feedback on that, its your baby :-)

> Couple of questions came to mind:
> Do we need a category for demonstrators & existing, deployed SemWeb apps?
they should be covered in the "SWEO case studies".
> Do we need a representative doc for each individual technology (RDF,
it would be a good idea to have a section on these technologies, 
containing a link to the spec, the primer,
for some technologies, like RDF+RDFS, a tutorial is better when it 
covers some practical aspect, for example "using RDFS and FOAF to 
connect with your friends" or "using RDFS within the Jena framework"

but that goes too far, these resources should be in the 
SWEO-Infogathering sparql endpoint and browsable in some visualization, 
where I can select "jena + rdfs" and get something. I would not do that 
in a wiki, too cumbersome.

once the skeleton looks good, we should make a call on SWIG/planetrdf to 
fill it.
