The Net links computers, the Web links documents. Now, people are making another mental move. There is realization now, “It’s not the documents, it is the things they are about which are important”. Obvious, really…

I called this graph the Semantic Web, but maybe it should have been Giant Global Graph! Any worse than WWW? ;-)
