Along these lines, a couple of us here in Austin at SXSWi and
BarCampAustinIII are going to be doing a session (or two) on
RDFa/GRDDL and "big-S semantic web technologies for the
practitioner" (the actual title will be better than that)

Although I'm running behind getting a slide set together, I've
been working with Taylor Cowen with help from Dan Connolly
to get a fully-worked-out RDFa/GRDDL/RDF example using
travel itineraries as the subject area.

The idea is to show how small communities can leverage the
work done by the W3C to create and process semantic markup
vocabularies with (relatively) little work and without having to
have a PhD in Knowledge Representation theory,

It hasn't been entirely smooth sailing :-) but I'll write something
up about the trials, tribulations and triumphs after the sessions
on Sat.

It would be _very_ helpful to have a mailing list to refer people
to. Unless someone tells me different, I would not feel comfortable
suggesting this list for that sort of discussion. I'd give a very
enthusiastic +1 to creating a new list and a clean, simple web
page for new users. The microformats community has done an
excellent job with that, and I recommend taking a look at their
pages at http://microformats.org
