Semantic Web – Aaah, so NOW I get it …
So I was viewing Tom Gruber’s presentation at the SemTech 2009 conference in San Jose in June, and I was blown away by a video Tom played at the beginning of the presentation. The video is a 20-year-old video that Apple created that, to an extraordinary degree, forecast aspects of ubiquitous, global, real-time, social, semantic Web that has and is emerging.
The video is demos a ficticious Apple product called Knowledge navigator, and it sets the stage for Tom’s presentations. Here’s the video:
Blow my mind! This was created over 20 years ago (1987)! Now watch Gruber’s presentation.
