Semantic Interlinking of Online Communities

The W3C Semantically-Interlinked Online Communities (SIOC) Ontology Submission has been acknowledged. My greatest hope with the submission is that the specification will show to people what the semantic web is and it not - that it is not some magic, but something grounded, simple and easily deployable which can lead to new ways how data on the web can be used and interconnected - e.g., with the SIOC Explorer. And of course there are commercial opportunities opening up as well, since the SIOC adoption is developing nicely. Thanks to John and Uldis and all the other contributors for the hard work they have put it!
