Knowledge, Learning, Community
This is a nice introduction to the concept of the semantic web. I especially like the diagram at the bottom of the document showing its progression into modal logic and axiology. Readers should note that this model of knowledge is controversial, not so much because of my objections (mentioned below) but because of the argument that knowledge is not reducible to atomic sentences (aka 'triples' in semantic web lingo).
