Nova Spivack, founder and (I think) CEO of Radar Networks / Twine (see prior post here), entrepreneur, blogger, and grandson of management legend Peter Drucker, is often described as head salesperson for the semantic web / web 3.0.
Here is the video of Nova giving a presentation on the semantic web at the recent Next Web conference in Amsterdam. It’s ~45 minutes, but well worth watching.
My favorite quotes:
- “Let’s turn the web from something that is more like a file system into something that’s more like a database.” (Hallelujah!)
- “The web is the database. We’re turning the web into a database. We’re making the world wide database.”
- “Keyword search has reached its limit. It’s not going to get better. It’s going to get worse.”
Thanks to Daniel Tunkelang for blogging about this.
