From CNET.  I figure Dan Brickley at least would be interested.
The semantic web may be birthing itself quicker than we think,
and the midwives delivering it may not even be aware of RDF.
Something like this one is certainly brain-dead easy to implement
atop IE or Netscape (I'm surprised it took this long for someone to
do it).  And I've a notion that this is just going to encourage a
bunch more people to try out other similar things.  All without
paying attention to RDF's lessons learned.  Does this concern 
anyone?  Any ideas?
