Hi Jeff,

First impressions - looking good

style : 
* as you mentioned, could do with some images/diagrams
* there are a lot of bullet points per slide, can perhaps be broken down a little more

content : 
* hmm... for this audience I would have thought data integration would be the main angle to emphasize (still further), i.e. more value from your data through improved integration = more profit!!
* not sure how to word this, something like "building on the technology that underlies the biggest information system to date (the web)", and maybe more value from your data through the network effect = more profit!!
* to the low risk/low cost arguments maybe a bit more along the lines that incremental dev is possible (with fairly immediate returns), and that the technologies work ok with all known (?) dev methodologies
* ...plus future-proofing - even if the future landscape looks massively different (which it probably will), stuff gained from applying semweb tech will be reusable
* standards standards standards

no forgetting -

* filling in the bits promised for XML and SOAP :-)

(a year or two ago one of the HP folks came out with a nice angle, along the lines that WS-* etc had enabled loads of connectivity between/within companies, but having wired the systems together the companies now have no idea how to actually connect the data together and do something useful with it...)

Cheers,
Danny.
