Privacy is antithetical to the semantic web

source: Shelley of Burningbird
Lastly, I was asked by Rob at UnSpace a long time ago what my most dangerous idea is. It's: Privacy is antithetical to the semantic web.
This is so true; but i don't think it is dangerous, it's just the way things work.  One grand dream of the semantic web is that information flows from anywhere to anywhere having the same meaning wherever it flows.  But information doesn't work that way, there are always walls which stifle that erstwhile flow.  Those walls go under different names like:  "privacy", "secrecy", "ownership", and "subjective interpretation".  These walls are not bad, they are necessary.  They are like the cell walls that allow our bodies to grow and function.  They form the context boundaries within which something can be said to be true or false.

"80 % of what we need to know to make good decisions is not secret, not in English, not online and not known to anybody in Washington DC.  Washington is operating on 2% of the relivant information"
Thanks, Amanda. Now you may not find this ot, but i think it is all about this subject.
