What Is The Semantic Web?

People have been using this phrase for years, although it hasn't always been clear what is meant by "semantic web".

In What Is The Semantic Web, Nova Spivack does a great job of explaining the theory.


The Semantic Web is not separate from the existing Web.....It simply adds new metadata to the existing Web. It merges right into the existing HTML Web just like XML does, except this new metadata is in RDF....
