Hi Karl,

I'm a couple of weeks late to the party here, but I just posted online a 
talk I gave to a class at the MIT Sloan School of Management about the 
Semantic Web. As this was a business school class, it's not an in depth 
technical talk; it attempts to put the evolution of the Semantic Web in 
the context of Web evolution, discusses what the Semantic Web is and how 
people are using it today, and goes over some of the challenges facing 
increased adoption on the Web and inside enterprises.

My apologies if it's too late to help you out, but perhaps it can help 
others out going forward.

It's online at: 
http://www.slideshare.net/LeeFeigenbaum/evolution-towards-web-30-the-semantic-web

There are significant speaker notes that give additional commentary to 
the slides, so I recommend clicking on the "speaker notes" tab while 
looking at the slides.

best,
Lee
