Hi sw99ers,

are you aware of the following program:
http://www.darpa.mil/iso/abc/BAA0007PIP.htm  ?

Size is 50 Mio US$

It does not cite the term Semantic Web, but this is the final goal
of the program.
It cites RDF, SHOE and Ontobroker as predecessors.

This project could give you the infrastructure you need for
the Semantic Web.
Nobody is able to build an RDF inference engine suitable for the web
in a garage - required effort and knowledge is too high.

Inside this project you have both.
