Great points.

We really need to use demonstrations of RWW oriented to build up 
visibility and traffic.

As you know, my style is quite simple: show and tell. Rather than just 
tell :-) Always try to have a link to a live demo. Ensure demos overtly 
or covertly showcase the underlying technology infrastructure:

1. Web
2. Linked Data
3. WebID
4. ACL ontology.

Then we can watch the followers grow. Ultimately, people are more 
interested is experience what's coming rather that being told about it 
via papers and press releases etc..


As a community, we must take interop seriously. It is also important 
(fundamentally) that we get comfortable with the concept of co-opetition 
[1]. Thus, nobody in this community (or any other Web community for that 
matter) is a direct competitor, we are all co-opetitors in the absolute 
worst case scenario.

To make a market (a cake) you have to bake it first. Being over 
competitive or perceiving others as competition is the shortest route to 
never establishing a market. Thus, instinctively acknowledge, 
appreciate, and celebrate all RWW contributions. Don't fall into the 
tendency of pretending some efforts don't exist, doing so ultimately 
plants seeds that ultimately derail the critical cohesion we seek.

IMHO, this RWW is the next frontier re. accentuating the virtues of the 
Web's Linked driven Data Space dimension.
