Additionally to Nodalities...

A fairly long time ago we started a collection of SW Use Cases and Case Studies at W3C:


the goal was to collect real SW deployment examples in industry and academia (ie, not reports on university projects). It is not perfect, it is not complete, but it is a start. W3C decided _not_ to 'edit' those entries but, with minor modifications, take what is out there which also explains the different style and, frankly, quality of the submissions.

It is true that, in the last year, the number of submissions slowed down which may be my fault; I do chase applications but it is difficult to get people do the extra mile to write things down and sometimes I give up. But improving, enriching, etc, this collection would be good and any help would be greatly welcome....
