I've been designing and building RDF(S)/OWL ontologies for several years now. I want my models to interconnect with everyone else's. It's smart to mark up web pages with meaning.
Former programmer, current ontologist. My philosophy: it may look like a document, but there's a conceptual model behind it! Also that models should be elegant and correct, but above all usable.
Out of the available options: semantic web. I think linked data is related but slightly different. I don't think any of the names really resonate with the non-geek community.
I build OWL ontologies for a living, though not necessarily for the semantic web. I want to connect with other Portland folks who are interested in semantic web and semantics in general.
