yes and ++me

As you can read on

URIQA and the use of the uriqa get mode does a good thing to query rdf 
I used the concepts of CBD and dereferencable URLs throughout 
www.gnowsis.org and it helped much.

It was really easy to plug together
* gnowsis and mindraider
* and gnowsis and fenfire
* and gnowsis and foafnaut

so from my side:
* USE URLs (or google for uri crisis)
* uriqa is it to get it fly for today (.."bootstrapping" as patrick put it)
