Wikipedia 3.0

Interesting article on the semantic web and wikipedia.

"The problem with the Semantic Web, besides that researchers are still debating which design and implementation of the ontology language model (and associated technologies) is the best and most usable, is that it would take thousands or tens of thousands of knowledgeable people many years to boil down human knowledge to domain specific ontologies.

However, if we were to take the Wikipedia community and give them the right tools and standards to work with then that time can be shortened to just a few years, and possibly to as little as two years."
