Arjohn -

I find the substance of your comments helpful and I'll be acting on your
thoughts in future revisions.

In general, I'm striking a balance between reliable method (e.g., searching
only W3C mailing lists from Jan '05 - Aug '05 or selecting only startups
with VC backing) and judgment (e.g., more than one person has commented on
the inclusion of CapeClear). For the time being, my preference is to be
inclusive and cast a broader, rather than smaller net. That being said, I
still need to address companies like Profium, Ontoprise, Language &
Computing, Reengineering, and of course, Aduna.

Thanks for your suggestions - community input is critical to my effort and I
appreciate the time that you and others have taken to respond.

David

| Hi David,
| 
| You might consider putting some additional research effort in 
| the subject. On the one hand, you are missing a considerable 
| number of people/companies that you might easily have found 
| by searching the relevant mailing lists and/or conference 
| sites and by searching the web in general. On the other hand, 
| you are including some "vendors" that actually don't sell 
| anything that's related to the semantic web (depending on 
| your definition of the "semantic web", that is).
| 
| Some suggestions where to look:

| 
| Hope this helps,
