i'd also encourage people in the community at this opportunity 
to use the technology we're preaching it to be the non-plus-ultra.

especially with sioc, skos and foaf you can more or less do any page you
want, there's no need for wordpress, drupal and the like.

check out what happens with this sample page [1] with firefox and
firebug (or whatever) to see all the requests and whats going on
(=sparql + template).
