Hi,

To those of us believing in Semantic Web, meta-data, ontologies and
such, this article by Clay Shirky:

	http://www.shirky.com/writings/semantic_syllogism.html

might be quite traumatic.  It posits that real world is too fuzzy and
too messy for any clean, deductive scheme to succeed.
I am curious to get your opinion on this article.

Good read :-)
