I just noticed that I haven't posted to this neglected blog in five years, so maybe it's time to reactivate it. A ton has happened in the meantime on the web and the title of the blog that five years ago was somewhat futuristic is now more commonplace. The web has indeed become much smarter and the discussion then going on about 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0 has largely disappeared.
It's now the internet of things and big data rather than semantics that are topics of the day. Of course, semantics or smart data are underlying the surface and drive a lot of the intelligence we see today.
It will be interesting to follow the developments and how it all continues to affect how people interact, so stay tuned!
