R U ready for the sematic web?

12May08

From GigaOm: …Powerset, a San Francisco-based contextual-semantic search engine has finally launched. … it is currently limited to searching Wikipedia along with some supplementary results from Metaweb’s Freebase. I think it has made Wikipedia much easier to use. … Danny Sullivan over on Search Engine Land has an elaborate and fantastic indepth review of Powerset.
From howstuffworks: Instead of multiple searches, you might type a complex sentence or two in your Web 3.0 browser, and the Web will do the rest. In our example, you could type “I want to see a funny movie and then eat at a good Mexican restaurant. What are my options?” The Web 3.0 browser will analyze your response, search the Internet for all possible answers, and then organize the results for you.
From Wired Magazine: … the truth is, sometimes social connections are less useful than semantic ones. … I spent a couple of days shoving megabytes of my favorite stuff into it, and soon it was recommending amazingly on-target links. Twine figured out that I was interested in guitar gear and hooked me up with other musicians and the things they had found. It learned that I was into robots and began slipping me cool robotics sites. It’s a weird and pleasant feeling — having that assistant do your surfing and sifting for you. … Our information overload isn’t going away; our forest of bookmarks gets thicker by the day. To find our way, we’ll need a Web that can organize itself.
