I am not sure about this, Deborah's articles are typically of high quality
and reasonably comprehensible. They are more knowledge representation and
ontology articles rather than web focused Semantic Web topics, but they seem
to stand the test of time better than others. I am sure she or someone else
has updated and extended the ontology spectrum slide since 2003.

not on my end either

DOAP could be useful here

of course, but everybody does to move things forward ;-)

I wish to see more RDF in the wild, indeed. As an RDF file, embedded RDFa
and/or additionally and preferably served up as a content negotiated SPARQL
endpoint. It's so easy every web professional could do it with a little bit
of reading, and for free, no excuses here. It's about time, all it takes is
a little bit of plumbing.
