I’m talking with Retrevo on Monday, 9am pst on Digital Society, my blogtalkradio show. Retrevo is an example of what some call Web 3.0 or the Semantic Web. It’s the notion that data is smart enough about itself (the promise of XML and/or AI) to make meaningful associations that are far better than today’s algorithmically driven approach. Sir Tim, OM KBE FRS FREng FRSA and the men behind the curtain of the WWW have been talking about this for some time.
Next Tuesday’s Stanford VLAB event focuses on the Semantic Web with a great panel moderated by Paul Saffo. I’m looking forward to the event, but I seriously doubt the beta badge on their logo. That seems overly optimistic. What ever happened to Alpha?
