Funny indeed,

Some time ago
"Look it up on netscape"

Later
"Open up your explorer, then browse to..."

Now
"Google it!"

I can see someone praying
"Twine it... please, Twine it..."

How is this called. The candle on the cake syndrome or something like that?
Anyway, the entry barrier is getting lower and lower, so I don't think
we will have any branding lock in over the semantic web.
Did I tell you... my 13 year old brother is building a semweb
application for knowledge management.
Well, runescape stuff actually.

Scores
But, its a start ;)

I feel old.

Best
A
