One of the things I am desperately hoping we get out of these 
conversations is the fact that an enterprise and social dichotomy does 
not exist.

Contact Networks exist on the Web and inside the enterprise, most 
importantly both intersect via Objects of Sociality [1][2].

The Rdb2Rdf technology realm is ultimately about the ability to 
holistically connect dots between the "closed world" schema based realm 
of the traditional enterprise setup and the broader "open world" realm 
exposed by the Web.

Blogs, Wikis, Bookmarks, Pictures (geocoded), Discussion Forums are all 
data space realms that can bind migration in Columbia to appropriate 
decision making realms in the enterprise. I know Orri / Ivan have 
already explained the ODS scenario and how it relates to this kind of 
thing in the past. If not, then I will have them take the WWW2009 paper 
and use to fashion the usecase that you seek.

Yes, of course :-)

Okay, I encourage you to discuss this further with Orri and Ivan (public 
or private). The areas and subject matter have been understood for a 
very long time with regards to Rdb2Rdf.  Also note, this still doesn't 
take us outside the realm of integration across: SCM, CRM, ERP, Blogs, 
Wikis, Shared Bookmarks, Discussion Forums, Polls, Photo Galleries etc., 
via Rdb2Rdf technology application.
