Everybody do errors and I have just done one.
Thanks for proving me that I was wrong.
I probably should have wrote a blog post about it instead of writing a comment, that way I would have been sure that you get it (like this blog post that created an instant reaction).
Robert, it seems you didn’t received my email 4 days ago, so I am sorry about that.
Anyway it doesn’t change the essence of this blog post, and my comment. This is not a good start, but a good way, to try to tie the link between the “Web 2.0” (sorry but I don’t like that term 😉 ) and the Semantic Web [academic] community. There are much things going on around that could benefit everyone.
The only thing I would like to say that people would remember is that the Semantic Web is not the result of one or a couple of companies, but the result of a Whole; the result of the interaction between all beings.
Robert, I hope you will continue to dig deeper to find all the things people are working on related with the Semantic Web. Sorry about that, and I hope you a beautiful day!
I am asking the question and I hope I am wrong. Some days ago Robert Scoble wrote an enflaming post about what Radar Networks are currently developing. This “thing” (I refer to a “thing” because no body know what it really is (some type of semantic web system)) finally helped Robert to understand what the semantic web is. At that moment I was happy to see that a “Web 2.0” guru understood how Semantic Web technologies could help him; how they could be used to make the World a better place to live in. Then I told myself: “Fred, help him to see what other people are doing in that direction too. Show him what you are working on; what other people are developing too; what they are writing on the subject; Etc.” Then I wrote that comment on his blog post:
Could I suggest a couple of reading in that direction that could potentially interest you?:
- Zitgist Search Query Interface: A new search engine paradigm
- The Linked-Open-Data mailing list
- Planet RDF
From there, you will be able to dig deeper into the semantic web community, the ideas it plays with, what the Web is becoming, etc.
Hope it can helps some people to eventually understand what is going on with the semweb.
This comment has never appeared on its blog post. It seems he rejected it by moderation. I sent him an email 3 days ago and he never replayed to me. Why Robert rejected this innocent comment? I got my idea that lead to the topic of this blog post: “Has Robert Scoble got sone incensitives to ‘finally” get what the semantic web is?” Does Robert rejected it because I was referring to Zitgist; and that is a possible competitor to what Radar Networks is working on right now? I have no idea, but I am always frustrated to see when bloggers doesn’t tell to their readers they got some incentives to write articles about special things. Otherwise, why my comment got rejected? I have no idea, but I would like to know. At the end, these people will probably have to learn that the Semantic Web is more about cooperation between people, enterprises, other entities and honesty than a more traditional way to do things and business.
I think that the Semantic Web will change things in a major way, as long as people, societies and the way we live.
