I put "other" and "fragmented ecosystem" as the comment.

The academic world seems to be a system in its own right.  And if you're
not an academic, the projects can seem remote and disjointed.

There are quite a few businesses out there but tend to work on their own

The Gov stuff is also a system in its own right.

If you're just grass roots, especially if you dont or cant afford to attend
conferences, the whole thing can seem a bit of a maze.

I do love things like open mailing lists and IRC channels such as #swig,
the w3c wiki, and community groups, or even channels such as google+ have
recently starting improving things.

But I always get the feeling that groups, with similar goals, are operating
in relative isolation.

Certainly there is progress in this direction, but the dream of the
semantic web to allow rich collaboration (with tight feedback loops), and a
feeling of all pulling in the same direction seems not yet to be 100%
realized ...

Just a $0.02
