Yeah, the problem was that RDF was mistargeted.  Here are the
real-world RDF-based projects that I know of:

1. DMOZ (not really, but it was their intention)
2. RPMfind
3. XMLNews

The Dublin Core is also pretty serious about RDF representation.  I
know of three more, much larger (multinational, multiindustry)
RDF-based projects in the works, but I'm not at liberty etc. etc. blah
blah blah

All the best,
