Semantics Is The New Black

Published: 3/26/2008 10:22:12 AM
The Web is abuzz with "semantics."  The Semantic Web is an idea where web pages can communicate directly with each other in a way that lets them understand what the other page is really about.

Commonly this is done through the meta description tags of keywords that are included in the HTML coding on a typical page.  But there are limitations to this approach.

Web pages 'semantically' communicating with each other represent a potentially significant increase in the utility of using the Internet for getting things done or learning new information quickly.

There is a great post on the current status of various attempts to create semantic technologies - by Alex Iskold of Adaptive Blue.  While the semantic Web is just getting started, we at VentureDeal are following its development closely and expect to stay fully current on any new and interesting advances.
