Hi Paula,

I've made some proposed edits to the flyer. Please let me know what you

I agree that the section called 'Some building blocks' is at a different
level of abstraction to the rest of the brochure, so doesn't fit in well.

I do think it'd be nice to have 3 lines or so on W3C at the end of the
brochure, as W3C does do more than the Semantic Web.

I'm looking forward to seeing the images.
