Hi Sebastian,

HTML exposed the Web by way of User Agents (e.g. Browsers) that
implemented support. The notion of a Semantic Web requires extending
said Browsers to understand other hypermedia document types, which has
also been the challenge for many years.

While a lot of work has occurred re., building out the server-side
infrastructure for webby structured data (using RDF Language and LInked
Data principles), the end-user productivity side of things has been
playing catch-up.

Anyway, here are some client-side related applications and projects
aimed at building on the HTML+Browser foundation to expose the virtues
of a Read-Write Semantic Web of Linked Data:

[1] http://osds.openlinksw.com -- Structured Data Sniffer Browser Extension

[2] http://osde.openlinksw.com -- Structured Data Editor

[3] http://youid.openlinksw.com -- Verifiable Identity based WebID and
WebID+TLS protocol (while also supporting other authentication protocols)

[4] http://dokie.li -- Read-Write Editor and Social Sharing combo that
doesn't leave your work in a silo, while also leverage features from
items above (e.g, use of YouID)

Screencast Demo Links:

[1] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8vOr6fthFB4 -- Taking and saving notes

[2] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B-yrSU1qx4s -- Controlling access to
content derived from note-taking activity


-- Semantic Web Layer Cake illustration tweak, explained.

I hope this helps!
