Both TechCrunch and VentureBeat, along with ReadWriteWeb (and, of course, ZDNet!), are at the forefront of sites covering startups and investments in the Semantic Web space. The recent TechCrunch50 event also featured a number of entrants that put semantic technologies to good use; namely DotSpots, Fotonauts, Imindi and Popego.

There is a panel at the European Semantic Technology Conference in Vienna on Friday, at which we'll be exploring related issues. It's a conversation I look forward to continuing.
