Finally a way to understand what ‘the semantic web’ means

Updated on May 10, 2010

If you’ve tried to understand what the semantic web means – sometimes referred to as Web 3.0 – and haven’t got very far, this video will help.

The documentary-style video – surely as good as anything you might see on TV – created by journalism/psychology graduate Kate Ray includes insights from some big names in the web world including Tim Berners-Lee, David Weinberger and Clay Shirky.

It runs over 14 minutes but I found it highly compelling viewing. It’s worth the time.

    After searching for this information, I will have to say most people agree with you on this topic. But I have another opinion, see it in my blog.

    Thanks for sharing this Neville. This is the first time I've seen this explained with clarity.

    it certainly is. It's remarkable to think of the sheer volume of pages on the internet now and anything that can help us organise the content is good in my eyes.
