This is a great site for newbies!  I'll attach my implementation-notes thing 
here when its ready.  I think I need more than a wiki because the process of 
adding examples should be semi-automated.  I've also tried to contact Victor 
Lindesay because what I want to do is kind of an extension to 
http://schemaweb.info but haven't reached him yet. 

Right now the model I'm working on would spider or let people submit example 
implementations and grab the vocabs out of them, then keep track of triples 
like
 	:dc :used_at  :some_url

 so that we can sort and rank by popularity, and even let people categorize 
the implementations in the dmoz taxonomy so people can see what vocabs are 
used in what context.   ie
	
	:some_url  :belongs_to  :dmoz_cat

Don't know if this is the best way to do it, suggestions welcome.
