Building the Semantic Web (site)

From CreativeBehavior.com, “Demystifying the Semantic Web: Is Migration Right for You?,” another simile involving the web and librarians. “A Semantic Web is like the librarian who has read the books. It has the potential to go beyond mere information retrieval to intelligent decision-making…” Nice article with a good glossary of semantic web terms. I like how it focuses on benefits for individual web sites instead of the Web as a whole. The term migration in the title is refering to switching from a web site without defined semantic relationships among elements (like a lot of sites), to a semantic model. The brief article manages to pack in a couple case studies and “the business case” for building a semantic web site as well.
