In 2018 there was a big discussion about RDF being too hard for 
*average* developers (middle 33%) to adopt, and why.  Ideas were 
captured and discussion continued on the W3C EasierRDF github site:
https://github.com/w3c/EasierRDF

In 2019 the problem was discussed further both at the W3C Graph Workshop 
in Berlin

and at the US Semantic Technology Symposium (US2TS) held at Duke University:

At the upcoming 2020 US2TS we will propose and discuss Next Steps Toward 
Easier RDF:
https://us2ts.org/program-easier-rdf

However, in preparation for that event, I am curious to know what 
significant progress others think has been made in the past year, toward 
making RDF easier to adopt.  For example, one good resource that came to 
my attention in the past year is the "Awesome Semantic Web" list 
maintained on github:
https://github.com/semantalytics/awesome-semantic-web

What else?  Thoughts?

Thanks,
David Booth
