Semantic Web Haters

I'll answer Bex later when I get some time. I think he's wrong wrong wrong as in Mayor of Wrong Town wrong.

For now sign up for the DowJones web seminar on their entry into the Semantic Web. I suspect this is going to be along the lines of the ThomsonReuters Open Calais or something similar.

Comments:

Dow Jones sells a tool for ontology management. Thomson Reuters deploys a functioning free web service that processes millions of documents per day (according to readwriteweb.com). These guys aren't even in the same game.

The semantic web has its lovers and haters... I'm the latter. And I'll probably hate it even more tomorrow -- and every day thereafter -- until it proves its value.

Thanks for mentioning the webinar. We hope that the three part series is useful and informative for many. Looking at the registration list this afternoon i am already impressed by the diverse types of people who have registered! Obviously there is a lot of interest in the topic by many outside of the semweb community. @Ed Burton. I agree it is a different 'game'- but our focus is quite different on purpose. And yes you are correct we have an enterprise grade tool for ontology management (www.Synaptica.com) and we also serve many customers in the enterprise space that are looking for expertise and hands on guidance on how to leverage semantic practices- services that with one 'label' or another we have been providing for over 10 years to the market.

Not surprised about your reaction after reading your book. That helped prime me for Bex's post. I think Bex is right and wrong. It isn't viable now, but give it a decade or two and it will rock. We need better tech first, including hardware. This isn't something solved through a better algorithm. -Pie
