Hi Irene,

yes we have discussed the issue before. My concern was that if we list all
non-profit organizations that refer to semantic technology we may
end up with a listing of all Universities of the world. The current
approach Carmen and I have chosen will not scale for this (also
personally I am more interested in the growth of commercial entities).

In any case we will periodically check your form and as soon as it
has a critical mass of entries we will duplicate the content on our site.
Thanks for helping to extend the coverage of the initiative.

Many greetings,
