Good Separately… Great Together

Tim B on Semantic Web and Web 2.0:

  • Together…interesting
  • Not alternatives
  • Tags and URIs – two paths to data

Tom Grubber on Where Social Web meets Semantic Web (he prefers the more generic Social Web to Web 2.0):

  • Semantic Web – interaction among systems, Social Web – conversations between people
  • Both are driven by user generated content
  • Both are made scalable by machine readable data
  • Semantic Web is a substrate for Collective Intelligence
  • Both Semantic Web and Social Web can use “people power” to improve collective intelligence

Two different people, the same inspiring theme -Web 2.0 and Semantic Web, Good Separately… Great Together.
