Hi Golda,

Yes, this is really nice idea that has gained some traction in the Web2.0 world with sites like StumbleUpon and Lijit. It would be *very* interesting to see a Semantic Web reworking of the concept.

As Chris points out, http://revyu.com/ has many of the required components in place already. We have a bookmarklet that people can use to review resources on the Web (or things described by resources on the Web - the nature of the relationship between resource and web page is defined at review-time).

We don't allow arbitrary annotations other than reviews (text and numerical rating) and keyword tags, but in the first instance that might be sufficient. All this information is available via the SPARQL endpoint, and the trust-based features are close to being ready. 

So, it would be pretty easy to implement a bookmarklet or browser plugin that checked Revyu.com for any reviews of the currently viewed Web resource (or things related to that page) and showed this to the user. If you're interesting in investigating this further please do get in touch; we'd be very happy to work with you in getting this implemented.

Drop me an email off-list and we can talk some more :)

Tom.
