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

Is it the "Next Big Thing?" Yeah, I think so. Or at least part of "The Next Big THing."

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

Work with XML, RDF, OWL and SPARQL already to some extent. Particularly interested in FOAF, SIOC, digital identity, distributed trust, distributed reputation, and "Webs of Trust."

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

Some interesting e-commerce applications may be among the first wave of things that people use regularly. I'm interested in the idea of the SemWeb powering a truly decentralized, distributed, federated "Social Network" personally.


Greetings from North Carolina! I'm a member of the RTP Semantic Web Meetup, founder of OpenQabal (an open source semweb related project) and President of Fogbeam Labs and looking to network with other semweb enthusiasts.
