Read/Write Web expounds on a NYTimes article about Web 3.0, or the semantic Web. Yeah, uh, so what’s the semantic Web? I guess it’s closer to collectively shared artificial intelligence than we’ve experienced before, based on documents stored on the Internet that are arranged by metadata. If there are already billions of pages on the Web with POOR metadata, how do they fit into this equation? Perhaps Web 3.0 will empower random individuals to add metadata to most of these pages and sites in the name of public good, sort of like a Web-wide Wikipedia. It’s already happening with pictures, music, and podcasts, but are all those loose pages interesting enough to worry about? Maybe, or left to float in the digital wind, perhaps, until Web 4.0, 5.0, or beyond.
