Web 2.0 (Fools) Gold Rush 

Phil Wainewright
If Web 2.0 really is a gold rush, this will be the first in history when the people pushing the maps are the ones who've had their fingers burned. Mapping mashups are the fool's gold of Web 2.0 not merely because they produce no revenue, but far more crucially because they add no new semantic value to the integrations they perform. The real wealth creators will be those who offer enterprise mashup prospectors some means of swiftly and manageably reconciling multiple different data structures when they bring separate information systems together.

Topics: RDF | Web 2.0 | Representation
