Dear all,

perhaps someone of you seen this before: there is a nice article  
covering a Semantic Web music use case using the SIMILE tools [1] at  
xml.com: http://www.xml.com/pub/a/2006/11/22/music-and-metadata.html

"This article introduces the problems of Shawn, a hapless guy who has  
managed to get through a first date with a beautiful, charming, dance  
music fanatic. He accidentally met her when his mates suggested they  
all go down to a sleek new nightspot instead of their normal public  
house haunt ? beer-mats and weekly fixes of the same down-to-earth  
people. How does the Semantic Web help this indie music fan through  
the turmoil of planning that second date, while knowing absolutely  
nothing about dance music and with less cash than he appeared to earn  
when they first went out? The article looks at how the solutions  
compare for the Web and the Semantic Web by using Semantic Web tools  
produced by W3C, HP, and MIT under the SIMILE project."

I think it is very nice and might be of some interest for the music use case.

Best regards,
