If you want to pitch the semantic web, have a look at the following news article:

    23 November 2010 Last updated at 09:32 GMT. Why the future of search is social
By Mark Ward Technology correspondent, BBC News 

In my humble opinion there are three ways to enhance web search, one is by user 
profiling, which tries to pigeonhole users by predefined templates and 
web usage behavioral statistics.

The second is by use of semantic web technologies which search for semantically linked content.

 third is by defining search based on culture, cultural behavior, or 
more particularly group behaviors based on commonly shared values, needs
 or other criteria.

The obvious linkup of Bing and FaceBook and the intention of Google to invent an improved social search will have to rely on a mix of all three technologies.

Which brings us back to the original thread of the Semantic Desktop: it needs to incorporate some of this cultural modeling, or in its bare essence modeling of peer groups and social network and professional network structures.

And I definitely would not want to pitch S.E.M.A.N.T.I.C. as proposed.

How have you pitched this to?
Does it work?
