Re: Use of Content Management Systems, ranking and usage in Semantic Web


I downloaded your listing last year. It is a good start but also a long way off from having a good overview of the gaps in the transition to a scenario in which SW apps, IDEs, add-ons and plugins are available for mainstream web site design and creation.
