I have to say that that was one of the more hilarious tech articles  

""""The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), the Internet standards  
arbiter that developed the HTML content description protocol,  
released a new standard several years ago called the semantic Web.  
Operating on linkages between data called triplets, in which two URL- 
based pieces of information are connected by a recognizable  
relationship in a kind of subject-verb-object arrangement, the  
semantic Web gained far less momentum with programmers than did HTML,  
which can be searched on the basis of written language."""
