For the record:

I didn't say that Content Labels were approved by the W3C. It appears that
journalists will never get the concept of an incubator project to help fast
track potential standards onto a full recommendation track.

I never said that Segala was the owner of Content Labels. I think they
misinterpreted 'Content Labels' with my instigation of contentlabels.org 

I didn't say that the SWEO group formally backed Content Labels. They've
mistaken this for Search Thresher.

Regarding the interest from Microsoft, AOL and VeriSign - that was also
misinterpreted. Philip Hallam-Baker from VeriSign said that what we were
doing was brilliant, Arun from AOL said that he needs to introduce me to the
head of Netscape and I've been told by Sam Sethi that Microsoft want to pay
us to build an IE plugin. 

So, that said, it's decent coverage of a good use case to demonstrate one
small implementation of the Semantic Web.

The good thing is that the journalist wants to follow the story and get
involved in helping to create a code for blogs. Please get in touch if
anyone here would like to participate (Sam, Sethi, Tom Raftery and Dennis
Hewlett are amongst the participants).

Cheers
Paul
