What is the Analogue for The Semantic Web, And Why is Finding One Important.
This paper postulates that for the Semantic Web to grow, and gain input from fields that will surely benefit it, such as Information Retrieval, Design and Human Computer Interaction, it needs to develop an analogue that will help people not only understand what it is, but what the potential opportunities are that are enabled by this new technology. The model proposed in the paper takes the typical way that Web interaction has been framed as a baseline to inform a similar analogue for the Semantic Web. While the Web has been represented as a Page + Links, the paper presents the argument that the Semantic Web can be conceptualized as a Notebook + Memex. The argument considers how this model also presents new challenges for fundamental human interaction with computing, and that hypertext models have much to contribute to this new understanding for distributed information systems.
