You're quite welcome.  Sorry I didn't get a chance to meet you.

Yes, Schevo is pronounced "skeevo" and rhymes with Tivo.  :-)

Glad you like the REST API.  Matthew Scott gets credit for that.

To be honest, I'm really not familiar with any of the semantic web
efforts.  I just try to do things that make sense to me and work very
hard to make things simple.  It is nice to see that the concepts I've
spent the past few years working on with Schevo and it predecessors are
starting to converge with lots of other efforts.  I'm definitely
interested in keeping in touch and learning more about your work.
