But Seth/Sean, the name 'Semantic Web' will be consigned to the history
books in a couple of years (or so) - what's the URI for the Web?

(I'd suggest something like '/')

<- Yep, it's easy to refer to something by it's name.

<- Yes, you could look at this [2] as a personal initive by SethBot

<- Semantic Web a machine name (uri).  I think the Scientific

<-
<-    Let the best dubbing win !
