Got a link to this TED talk from @PaulMiller. For a long time, I have been looking for a TED talk that's about Semantic Web. Kevin Kelly gives the talk and gives a great explanation of the future of the web and what the Semantic Web is.
In a nutshell, at the beginning, the internet was just a net: linking computers. We now have a web: linking web pages. What are we moving towards? Kevin Kelly calls it "the one": linking data. And that is what the Semantic Web is about.
Another thing that was very interesting was something Kevin Kelly said about the fax machine. The first guy who bought the fax machine was an idiot, because he had nobody to send a fax too! LOL! But eventually he started to evangelize and more people got fax machines. That is how I sometimes feel in the Austin community. When it comes to me evangelizing about the Semantic Web, it may seem that I am talking to myself, but eventually we all have to get on the Semantic Web boat!
Enjoy the video!
