Jeff,

sorry to be a bit late with my comments; I saw others have made some, 
too, so here are mine.

==========

'Widespread acceptance'

The role of W3C is a little bit different than the others. I am not 100% 
sure it is the right place to refer to W3C. In any case, the sentence 
'is adopting RDF and OWL as extensions to existing XML and Web Services 
  specifications' may raise some eyebrows...

As this slide set is, eventually, a W3C slide set with W3C logos on it, 
I think it would be better to remove that item altogether. Let us 
concentrate on others...

==========

'Semantic Web Will': I wonder whether the entries should not be 
shortened somehow... It may be a matter of style, but it seems to be a 
bit too long for a slide. Most of the text should be in the notes in my view

============
'A few citation': it may be a dangereous slide, in the sense that it 
will become outdated soon:-(
	- testamony -> testimony for TBL
	- I would add reference to some TBL video interview:
<a 
href="http://talis-podcasts.s3.amazonaws.com/twt20080207_TimBL.html">“Sir 
Tim Berners-Lee Talks About the Semantic Web”</a>, Transcript of the 
Podcast Interview with Paul Miller (February 2008); the <a 
href="http://talis-podcasts.s3.amazonaws.com/twt20080207_TimBL.mp3">sound 
version</a> can also be accessed on-line.
		
<a href="http://www.technologyreview.com/Infotech/18451/?a=f">Tim 
Berners-Lee on the Semantic Web</a>, Video on MIT Technology Review, 
March 2007 (the <a 
href="http://www.technologyreview.com/video/semantic">video of the 
interview</a> can also be accessed).

		
	- I would add a reference to the SciAm paper as being more recent:
<a 
href="http://www.sciamdigital.com/index.cfm?fa=Products.ViewIssuePreview&amp;ARTICLEID_CHAR=3734452E-3048-8A5E-1068474BA8D770C8">The 
Semantic Web in Action</a>, by Lee Feigenbaum, Ivan Herman, Tonya 
Hongsermeier, Eric Neumann, and Susie Stephens, Scientific American, 
297(6), pp. 90-97, (December 2007).
		
	- To make place, I may remove: Deborah's and Ora's references as being 
a bit old now...

I hope this helps. And I hope somebody can give me a version I can read 
into OpenOffice to finalize the outlook...

Thanks!

Ivan
