InTech;Apr2008, Vol. 55 Issue 4, p10
The article reports on the prediction by Tim Berners-Lee, inventor of the World Wide Web, that the Google of the future will use a type of mega-mash up technology called semantic Web. According to Berners-Lee, every piece of data in the semantic Web is given a longitude and latitude on a map, and anyone can mash them together and use them for different things. He said that the semantic Web would allow any piece of information, such as a photo or a bank statement, to be linked to all types of data in the same way as social networking sites give way to networks to connect all types of information.
