Project10X has just published a "Web 3.0 Manifesto". It's a kind of sequel to their Semantic Wave 2008 report released in January this year. Mills Davis, Managing Director of Project10X, told us via email that the new manifesto "reveals how semantic technologies will drive product and service opportunities in the next stage of the internet."
You can download the Executive Summary here. We got a look at the whole report and it is packed full of great data, including the two top 10 lists of Semantic Web opportunities detailed below.
