What are your thoughts about the Semantic Web? Is it the next Big Thing?

The Web already has many ontologies, overwhelmingly informal and embedded in social sites. Where do we go next? Who is driving this train? The core technology tension is between curation processes and big data processes. This is where business opportunities and governance opportunities intersect.

Which new technologies would you like to learn? Have you worked with any "semantic" technologies such as XML, RDF, OWL, GRDDL, or SPARQL?

XML, XML namespace, X Link, X Pointer, X Path, XML Schema, XSL, XQuery, RDF, RDF Schema, OWL, Sparcl, HTML 5

Which applications or web sites will make the Semantic Web a reality in the public eye?

Mission already accomplished at Internet speed. The public does not recognize the scope of Web resident ontologies, but the public embraces ontologies. The public does not care about ontology, but the public relies on and extends ontologies as part of their activities.


What is ontology good for? Where are all the complete, consistent, satisfiable logical models? Costs? Benefits? Time to raise the bar.
