Semantic Web meets Web 2.0 (and vice versa): The Value of the Mundane for the Semantic Web

schraefel, m.c., Smith, D.A., Russell, A. and Wilson, M.L. (2006) Semantic Web meets Web 2.0 (and vice versa): The Value of the Mundane for the Semantic Web s.n.

Record type: Monograph (Project Report)


Web 2.0, not the Semantic Web, has become the face of “the next generation Web” among the tech-literate set, and even among many in the various research communities involved in the Web. Perceptions in these communities of what the Semantic Web is (and who is involved in it) are often misinformed if not misguided. In this paper we identify opportunities for Semantic Web activities to connect with the Web 2.0 community; we explore why this connection is of significant benefit to both groups, and identify how these connections open valuable research opportunities “in the real” for the Semantic Web effort.
