Okay, Okay I’ll Familiarize Myself With the Semantic Web

So, yep here I am. Starting out week number four without a paying job. Not to say I am jobless. No far from it. I am busy looking for work. But not just prowling job sites, no. I am trolling the internet. I am learning. And I love it. I realize that at 51, I am not supposed to be “reinventing” myself. But I am. 20+ years in print, but now they say print is dead. Well they’ve said that about painting and jazz, but I haven’t given up on them either.

Print is not dead, it’s just a little under the weather. Probably won’t ever be as healthy as it once was. I mean, you can’t expect people to continue to buy into an old model when the new one looks so promising. Hello Chrysler? GM?

So I am tweeting and blogging and facebooking(?) It’s engaging. It’s distracting. And it’s enlightening.

I have always steered my teenagers away from Wikipedia. “Don’t trust it. It’s written by all sorts of unreliable people.” But today in my travels through the “tubes” of the internet, I read an article about Web 2.0 and Web 3.0… and then “The Semantic Web”. WTF? Quickly to Wikipedia, because I figured if I knew absolutely nothing about a subject, then maybe, just maybe, it could be trusted.

I can’t be the only one out there who couldn’t/still can’t define it. So check it out.
