Comment of the Day: First Base With Semantic Web

In our post Tim Berners-Lee Says the Time for the Semantic Web is Now, the Web’s inventor is quoted as saying that “people are realizing it’s time to just go do it.” But commenter Gregory isn’t getting as excited – he thinks that “we haven’t even gotten to first base”. And no we’re not talking about something Valleywag would cover. It’s the Semantic Web, kids. Congratulations Gregory, you’ve won a $30 Amazon voucher – courtesy of our competition sponsors AdaptiveBlue and their Amazon WishList Widget. Here’s his full comment:

“i strongly agree with your “reach new heights” thinking…

no matter how fine the mesh, human consciousness will be more subtle, and having a lot of the grunt work conceptualization taken care of machine-wise will reallyt allow this to become obvious…

the genome guys thought for a few minutes they got to the fundamental building blocks, and found that, no way, there was so much more at subtler levels that it only increased the questions…

same with the semantic web thing…

the danger? algorithms taken as reality, in the same way your insurance sx canceled by a computer because of some obscure programmer’s decision

anyway, it is going to arrive sooner rather than later, after all, technology is just the out-picturing on the material plane of the natural and inherent abilities of consciousness, and we haven’t even gotten to first base”
