Danny Ayers has updated the RDF Review Vocabulary with a handful of new terms (suggested by ITerating and Revyu, two entities currently deploying this vocabulary), and also made it OWL DL-friendly. He's also set it up as a GRDDL-enabled HTML meta data profile for the hReview microformat. He says still has some debugging to do, and wants to put together a diagram showing the classes and properties.

I like to consider myself fair and balanced when speaking about most topics. To educate the uneducated and to balance things out a bit I have compiled a list of 5 problems we will likely run into when we reach the Semantic Web. Each problem is a side-effect of advances in technology, rushes to fill new niches, or the previous two plus the desire to make a quick dollar.

Weekend Brain Dump of Ideas

  • Semantic metadata for video and other multimedia?
  • Will a new platform away from the browser have huge success? (ala Joost)
  • How can video games benefit from what we're doing with the Semantic Web?
  • Is Wikipedia the best playground for natural language processors to test their ability?
  • Does the World Wide Web as we know it need to be replaced?
  • Is HTTP inadequate for the future of the Web where streaming and maintaining state are becoming increasingly important?
  • Are we entering another brutal browser war? Maybe this one will be different because we know the importance of compatability
  • Will RDF or RDF/a be adopted by mainstream Web developers to markup semantic metadata?
  • ...Or will something come along that's better suited and easier for beginners to pick-up
  • Are we making any progress as-is towards our goal, or do we need to look for a different approach?
  • Is the best course bottom-up (building the Semantic Web from the ground up by using semantic markup, microformats, RDF, etc) or is it top-down (using natural language processors to read the Web and make sense of it for us).
  • With the freedom to create any RDF vocabulary or any ontology for that matter, will the real power be in mapping my meaning to your meaning?
