Last week I attended the MIT/Stanford VLAB panel discussion on "The Path
to the Semantic Web," featuring speakers from Stratify, Inxight, HP,
Alpiri and Delphi.  In the wake of the panel, I've written up my notes
along with a few thoughts and reactions (see below)
Dan Brickley suggested posting to this list in light of some recent
discussions here re: barriers to adoption of RDF.  Let me preface this
by saying that I make no pretense to expertise on RDF and/or the
Semantic Web.  I've just tried to summarize and reflect on a few key
points that came up during the panel, - and as a member of the general
interested public - tried to gauge whether the Semantic Web is really as
big a deal as all the hype out there seems to suggest.
I'd welcome any feedback or discussion.
