Read this today. The Semantic Web is finally starting to arrive, or at least finally a lot of people are working on tapping into the potential of the semantic web. I initiated a project in this area about 3 years ago, which has an interesting twist of how to use the Semantic Web. But I think there is still a long way to go, before the Semantic Web will mean anything useful for most people.
After my summer vacation I will try to elaborate a bit more on my ideas of the Semantic Web, and some ideas for new projects that that will accelerate the use of the Semantic Web.
