This does not sound like something that is needed right now. This sounds like a vision.

I hope we can describe what problems RDF+friends is meant to solve without resorting to visions. As one of our chancellors once said: "People with visions should go to the doctor" :-) Why? They are hard to get right. The bigger they are, the more likely it is you got it wrong. I think even the Web started with moderate ambitions - but then surprised everybody.

Besides: IMO, everybody who thinks that connecting more "things" to the Internet is a good idea should read more security news. And we are even unable to get very basic and supposedly simple stuff right. Stuff like glibc strstr() for example.

Regards,

Michael Brunnbauer
