We Need Academic Efforts for Web Science

A Robert Scoble interview with Tim Berners-Lee.

It involves serious study. It involves research. We need to study it as a huge complex system.

A few snippets:

  • Social Web is just a subset of the larger semantic web
  • eBay has over 21 identity systems
  • Tim B was not sure whether the web would work
  • He is still worried about the lack of interoperability
  • SPARQL – a query language/protocol to query huge amount semantic end points, a SQL for the Web
  • Web 2.0 is exciting but is producing stove pipes. Some people are using Web 3.0 to break down the stove-pipes
