Nova Spivack posted The Semantic Web, Collective Intelligence and Hyperdata, a response to Tim O'Reilly's recent post about the Economist. I found Nova's response to be very informative. He shared some of his insightful ideas, such as folktologies — emergent, community generated ontologies. He believes that the Semantic Web is all about collective intelligence, and he suggests that the term "hyperdata" could be a useful way to express what the Semantic Web is all about.

He goes on to cover the following topics:

  • What Makes Something a Semantic Web Application?
  • Semantic Versus Semantic Web
  • The Difference Between "Data On the Web" and a "Web of Data"
  • The Semantic Web is Built by and for Collective Intelligence
  • Folktologies
  • Web 3.0 and the concept of "Hyperdata"
