Hello Eyal, 

Hugh pointed you to the description of how BBC's Worldcup 2010 microsite is powered by a triplestore, you can find more information on this in a blog post written by the BBC today : 

http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/bbcinternet/2010/07/bbc_world_cup_2010_dynamic_sem.html

The National Gallery in the UK is also piloting some service which are powered off of a triplestore. The triplestore contains provenance information relating to the National Gallery's Raphael collection, and is powering the following microsite: 

http://cima.ng-london.org.uk/documentation/index.php

Furthermore ZDnet's data dictionary is powered off of a triplestore (4store [GPLv3]): 

http://www.zdnet.com/topics/RDF

QDOS, is another service which runs off of 4store too:

Garlik's DataPatrol service is run off of a triplestore too (Garlik's proprietary 5store)

There will be information regarding how we at Garlik use semantic tech in Dave Wood's soon to be published book entitled "Linked Enterprise Data", which should be out soonish I guess:

It's still an ongoing work, we are working on several aspects (both the interface and the backend), so any comments or suggestions would be really appreciated.
