Today's W3C Semantic Tutorial

I'm sitting in on the W3C Semantic Web tutorial, and pleased to see that it is quite interactive. Often people comment after having their questions answered "that is a real good selling point for SW, is W3C using that in their Semantic Web promotional material?". 

For example, in Eric P and Lee's presentation on SPARQL, they showed how easy it is to edit an existing SPARQL query by simple substitution, where attempting to do this as a SQL query would be much harder. This caused one participant to exclaim "this fact should be made more strongly to the public so that more folks can understand SPARQL's virtues".

We have just gone through a crash course on GRDDL, and will be touching on RDFa shortly....
