[REBOL] Re: The future of the web will be based on personal computing

From: gregg:pointillistic at: 22-Mar-2007 13:10

Hi Ed, EOC> Just to keep the conversation flowing, here's a blog post titled: EOC> Why the Semantic Web Will Fail. EOC> The author (not me) makes some interesting points about the big EOC> corporate players on the web and how they're out to exploit you EOC> and appropriate your content for their advantage. I agree with the author on the basic premise that there are a lot of people out there who are more concerned about themselves, than about helping others. I can speak first-hand about how features designed to help people share and collaborate were met with *enormous* resistance, and what people asked for was the ability to collect data that they could use to protect themselves without exposure. I win, you lose; that's OK. We both win; that's OK too. You might win, and there is a remote chance that I might lose; forget it. We both lose; that's better than you winning and me losing. Or maybe I'm just feeling cynical. :\ -- Gregg
