>From what we see RDFa is musherooming around due to the support by
Google/Yahoo,  the next boat IMO is indeed RDFa but even more the kind
of support for RDF we can get into HTML5.

So enhanced web pages are not likely to be natively linked to the
"LOD" cloud (sorry there simply is no incentive to do so by data
producers) so it will take something to actually create these link
externally, but this might indeed happen well if the entities are
described in a reasonable way in first place (something for which
there are indeed incentives to do)

So in conclusion I wouldnt give up on the Semantic Web yet, as at
least at the moment  there is a promising new wave of deployment.
(which clearly wont last however unless more incentives are displayed)
