Dieter,

This is a fabulous idea.  There is at least on major shortcoming: you forgot
to include the company I work for (Semantic Arts
<http://semanticarts.com>:-)).  I'll make sure you get an entry from
us.

Seriously, I'm delighted to see this happen.  I do wonder how you may
attempt to draw the line that defines "semantic technology".  There will
always be grayness. If it is too broad, the usefulness of this list could
decrease. That could be ameliorated by a rich set of semantic technology
categories, so a person could focus on a particular technology are, or
ignore other ones. I.e one facet could be 'type of technology" which could
include


   1. NLP, with sub-categories including sentiment analysis
   2. Triple stores
   3. Latent-semantic technology
   4. etc...

I look forward to seeing this in the linked data cloud!

Michael
