Hi all,

Seems like nowbody of the broader Semantic Web community became a mentor 
of this years Google summer of code [1]. :-(
However, there seem to be some semantification projects appearing: The 
PHP Content Management System Joomla! for example aims at integrating 
Triplify [2] within a GSoC project:

Also the Drupal community is actively discussing to integrated Semantic 
Web and Linked Data interfaces [3]. Probably also a number of other GSoC 
mentoring projects would be interested to see an integration of semantic 
technology.
Since many of us work with students this could be an excellent 
opportunity to involve young people into practical Semantic Web (and 
open source) related projects: Students can earn $5000 during the 
summer, they have to apply on or suggest a suitable project to one of 
the GSoC mentors and work on it during the summer. However, time is 
running out - the application deadline ends March 31st.

Sören

BTW: GSoC participants will also be eligible to participate in the 
Triplification Challenge [4] we are currently preparing.
