Explaining the semantic web

Find myself being asked more regularly to explain ‘the semantic web’.  I think it’s a combination of a growing awareness in the business community of the semantic web and a greater focus on this topic by myself.

Read a piece this morning on the hypios web site – a web 2.0 based problem solving site.  In the first page of this essay the author offers an excellent introduction to the semantic web (and the requirement for a semantic web).

The only reservation I would have would be the ‘plea’ to business to make more data available publicly as linked open data.  I agree with the sentiment – but not sure that business on such sentiment.
