RDF: Reality Distortion Field
By bblfish on Sep 12, 2008
Here is Kevin Kelly's presentation on the next 5000 days on the web, in clear easy English that every member of the family can watch and understand. It explains what the semantic web, also known as Web 3.0, is about and how it will affect technology and life on earth. Where is the web going? I can find no fault in this presentation.
This is a great introduction. He explains how Metcalf's law brought us to the web of documents and is leading us inexorably to a web of things, in which we will be the eyes and the hands of this machine called the internet that never stops running. For those with a more technical mind, who want to see how this is possible, follow this up with a look at the introductory material to RDF.
Warning: This may change the way you think. Don't Panic! Things will seem normal after a while.
