No, "we" are not...alright, maybe just a little bit :-) A fully working
Schemaker would be part of the way there, but the most important thing is
editing/rendering/browsing RDF, and you don't do that with Schemas. Schemas
don't mean anything if you use a URN rather than a URL, and to a certain
extent an SW browser would have to use the "name" part of namespaces, but
grok the Web of Trust thing. Sounds dificult, but the coding wouldn't be all
that hard to an experienced programmer. Someone could do it quite easily:
look at Mosaic, that just kind of "appeared".
Can you imagine a decent interface to the Seamntic Web? Everything stored in
some Semantic Data format, allowing trust RDF extensions, and also an
interface that allows editing as well as reading, and your own personal web
spaces, and goodness knows what else...like the Web we have now, but
10/20/100? times better!

LS: "Way for the future!"
