Google Base and the Semantic Web

I note that Google has just launched Google Base [1], which seems to be a 
metadata tagging system for Google-searchable content.  I'm curious as to 
how people feel this will affect the semantic web, as there appears to be 
considerable overlap between the problem that Google is trying to solve 
and the intended uses of RDF & OWL.  Thanks.
