The Future of Human Knowledge: The Semantic Web (TechNewsWorld.Com) by Gene J. Koprowski. I don't recognise the quoted names, is that a sign that the activity is broad (optimistic) or that they are just who the journalist managed to get on the phone in the USA (pessimistic)?
Will somebody please keep these people away from the phone and any funding: "According to analysts, the Semantic Web, which will understand human language, will replace the current Web by 2005," Woods told TechNewsWorld. "But we believe it will be more like 2010."
Ha ha ha! I love the un-named sources part which makes it irrefutable.
