And now for something completely different: the "semantic web"

(From Technology Review) Tim Berners-Lee, inventor of the WWW, talks about the next stage of Internet technology, the "semantic web".

I'm particularly interested in how this might change the way we correlate and harmonize different forms of historical data, and the speed at which we can do so. PhDs might be written in three months, rather than three years!

This guy seems to be so smart that he can't make his mouth keep up with his brain! The tonage of things he probably knows about the web would stun a team of oxen.

Like you, I wonder what the implications are for research in what he is saying. I am sure that will become clear in the next decade or so.

As a further aside, I am glad to see that someone talks with their hands more than I do.

PhD's might still take three years. But they might be better.
