Great articles, Uche.  More dense than I can absorb at a 
sitting but you did a fine job of showing how web service 
description can combine with RDF.  I like Services Web 
with the Big S but I would. :-)  

I wonder how that would all work if Topic Maps were used 
instead of RDF.  It might visualize easier and 
since clustering is the trick, I wonder if the visualization 
based on topic maps would cluster more directly.

I noted the visualization with interest.  I wasn't aware 
that Brickley has added VRML output.  I forwarded your 
article URL and reference to Brickley's Rudolf to the 
VRML lists where some folks might want to pick up the 
banner for using XSLT to transform the output into the 
new XML-based X3D language.  For 3D visualization to 
help, it really should take advantage of the culling 
tricks of VRML or X3D and use switching.   There 
is lots of experience on the VRML list and perhaps 
someone will pick this up.

It would be interesting to hear Tim Bray's take on 
the services visualization thread since this seems 
to fall squarely into what his company is doing.
