So I was just getting ready for bed last night when a thought came to me. So I popped into Blogger and spent ten minutes writing the post. Maybe I should have given it a different title - but sheesh, someone has to say it. Here is the central idea: "The Semantic Web will never work because it depends on businesses working together, on them cooperating." Readers might not like the examples that were top-of-mind last night (or my peeved state about Yahoo killing my Flickr account) but readers of this newsletter have over the last seven years seen an unending list of examples. Well, today I've been getting comments all day and - incredibly - I have, for the first time in my life, been Slashdotted. Go figure.
