Dear John:    (01)

The GoodRelations Annotator is a tool that helps any business in the 
World create a self-description of its profile in RDFa using the 
GoodRelations ontology, which you can then publish via your own Web page 
(or do with it whatever you want).    (02)

What the tool does is soliciting this type of information in a manner 
familiar to business owners and translating it into a pretty complex RDF 
graph.    (03)

The benefit of publishing such rich meta-data is that available and 
upcoming ontology-based search services, including Yahoo SearchMonkey, 
will be able to find that business. The tool only makes it simpler to 
create such data structures because we found that average audiences 
would often not be willing to do the manual modeling, e.g. as described in    (04)

- or the ISWC GoodRelations Tutorial, Part 3:
http://www.slideshare.net/mhepp/iswc-goodrelations-tutorial-part-3    (06)

You know that I have the highest respect for your work, and it was 
influential to my education in conceptual modeling. I fail to see, 
however, why helping people to populate one of the few serious Web 
ontologies could be anywhere near the four letter word used in your mail.    (07)
