We learned yesterday that DBTune was nominated for the Triplify Challenge! The other seven projects are really interesting as well, so I guess the competition will be really high! The final results will be given at the I-Semantics conference in early September.

Also, Tim Berners-Lee made a great talk about linked data and the semantic web on Radio 4 earlier today. The first use-case he mentions sounds quite familiar: finding bands based on geo-location data. He already mentioned that in one of his blog posts, linking to this screencast.

An interesting discussion took place on the Linking Open Data mailing list just afterwards, to gather use-cases for explaining to a general public what linked data can be useful for.
