here some input aimed at IT-boss people picking up Semantic Web.

"The Semantic Web enables companies and individuals to publish 
information and exchange information, compatible with the current web, 
based on XML, and standardizing how to publish and integrate 
information. Data from your content management systems and existing 
software is the first input for the Semantic Web, like the RSS success 
story has already shown for web content management. Product information, 
service description, and more information can be published now by you, 
either using existing data standards like Dublin Core or FOAF (footnote: 
more at http://olp.dfki.de/ontoselect/ and http://www.schemaweb.info/), 
or by creating new standards yourself using RDFS and OWL, which are 
comparable to XML-Schema or other data definition languages.

Your existing data sources, from web content management, intranet 
systems or database systems, can be connected based on web technology 
and the RDF. This reduces integration costs and simplifies the IT 

treat it as input, (put it on the wiki?) so that we can further 
elaborate on it.
