The Semantic Web = A Smarter Web

A nice article from John Borland about the Semantic Web.  

"If Web content was going to be labeled, why not use the same infrastructure to classify other information, like the price, subject, or title of a book for sale online? That kind of general-purpose metadata--which, unlike XML, would be consistent across sites--would be a boon to people, or computers, looking for things on the Web"

As I argued in a recent blog combining today disconnected tagging infrastructures with an encyclopedia like Wikipedia may just be the first link to John Borland's smarter Web.

Semantic Web: The Beginning of the Age of Enlightenment ?

      

After we blogged, tagged and shared brilliant thoughts on anything (we can think of) during the Participation Age, the Internet may soon enter what could be called the Age of Enlightenment. The Age of Enlightenment will help morph the Internet into a knowledge network where information is enriched, cataloged, related, and more importantly disambiguated, so initial semantic and reasoning can emerge. Smart people called it the Semantic Web or Web 3.0. If human history repeats itself, the Age of Enlightenment will help ensure that our editor and browser can scope with the massive amount of information available on the Web will a little more enlightenment. As the Encyclop├ędie has been considered an important catalyst for the Age of Enlightenment, and has aimed to change the way people think. Wikipedia may help to change the way our editor and browser parse information. It will be great if our editor and browser could start help us figure out and give us context when we type or read phrase such as  "sun, sun, sun, sun and of course sun". I know what i meant to write. If you want to know, just follow each word link as a sample of what the Semantic Web could do :-)
