Why I left the Semantic Web!



Scamper and Silky were dogs, sorely missed these seven and fourteen years.

... hmmm ... should i tag this item "dogs" or "semantic web" ... oh well, ill tag it with both ... thing is people usually put cats on the semantic web ... [see: tag burningbird,rdf]

Colm Sean O Cinneide says
Sorry, I have had too much coffee.

Seth says
... so why did the leave the semantic web ?  ... because he got tired of waiting for it to happen.  That's the short answer.  I think things that are going to happen in a big way on the Internet will emerge very swifly ... witness feeds ... notice i dont say RSS anymore.  The other reason is that there is no context in the triple ... it is not a quad.  The other is that it is too complicated.  The other is the sem webbies obsession with inference ... strong inference just does not work where you have an open system where everyone is makin assertions ... what is true to you is not true to me etc etc [see: title truth].  RDF is just good for recording ground facts; but not gleaning what those ground facts imply. 

but that is my rambling miscontent with Sir Tim Berner-Lee's latest endevour.
