Dear semantic technology enthusiasts,

I have been approached by a journalist who would like to start a series 
of articles about the Semantic Web for the Web portal of a national 
German TV station. Experience shows that this often leads to follow up 
media coverage elsewhere -- a great opportunity to communicate the 
successes of our field to the general public.

But this can only be achieved based on compelling real world use cases 
that are interesting to the people on the street. Hence I would like to 
ask for your support:

* Are you aware of previous media coverage for a non-technical audience? 
The "Semantic Web in Action" article is the only example that I recall 
(posts in IT news portals and blogs for Web experts are not what we need).

* Are you aware of compelling use cases that are of general public 
interest? The challenge here is that technically interested non-experts 
should be able to understand how a concrete, useful functionality is 
enabled by the technology.

I am happy to propose ideas to the journalist, and to establish contacts.

Cheers,

Markus
