Hi Tom,
I heard the interview too. It was cool (and slightly weird) to hear "semantic web" discussed on prime-time news, but I thought that Tim could have used a more compelling example. The interviewer didn't seem overly impressed by Tim's "find me music by people born within 100 miles of my location". OTOH, it's hard to come up with really compelling examples to use with non-specialists. Which examples does anyone else use to get the idea of LOD across in the mainstream?
