An der Schwelle zu Web 3.0

Dean Giustini und Allan Cho haben kürzlich einen Artikel über das Web 3.0 (auch bekannt als Semantisches Web) geschrieben: The Semantic Web as a large, searchable catalogue: a librarian’s perspective.

In general, the Web is not unlike print libraries before Melvil Dewey introduced his classification system … We suggest that the techniques of bibliographic control apply to the coming Semantic Web. Computer scientists and engineers created Web 1.0 and 2.0 but professionals in the library science and information science field can play a prominent role in Web 3.0. Although we are still coming to grips with the implications of Web 2.0, we are in a liminal stage. Folksonomies, social tagging, wikis, blogs, podcasts, mashups are building blocks for the coming Semantic web. (Fettdruck durch mich)
