Eeek!
Please, not Yet Another Directory of companies, tools, projects.
There are already quite few of these, I think, all expecting people to come along and edit them.
This one went through the list only a couple of months ago.
http://dir.w3.org/directory/categories_list.xhtml?construct
then for projects there is
http://www.w3.org/wiki/SweoIG/TaskForces/CommunityProjects/LinkingOpenData#Research_Projects_focusing_on_Linked_Data

Of course, if there is a Semantic Web solution so I only have to provide my data once (or even by publishing an RDF file?)... :-)

Well done all resurrecting semantic web.org.
