Hi David,
Can you clearly distinguish RDF from SW.  Is RDF simply "a" way to get to
SW?  Are there other ways to get there?  Can you also provide your best
estimate about the near to mid term landscape of item no. 5.  In other
words, who (major and minor SW vendors) has anything now and who might be
delivering anything tangible that supports SW.  
Thanks, Joel

I will address these and other general questions about the Semantic Web, 
RDF and ontologies in Paris.  Are there other specific questions that 
anyone would like me to address?  (I can't promise that I will be able to 
answer all possible questions, but the more I have in advance, the better I 
can prepare.)  Please email them to me privately.

Thanks!
