Tim vs The Semantic Web 

Tim O'Reilly
What's so clever is that by articulating the types as a separate structure from the data, and having instances inherit that structure when they are created, users don't think they are providing metadata -- they think they are just providing data.

Because anyone creating a new instance is prompted to fill out the data in a structured way, that it doesn't seem like an extra task, but rather that the software is being helpful.

. . .

The user is given an opportunity to create a very structured entry that doesn't feel like a chore but just the natural way to perform the task.
