So much stuff. That’s the general theme of a new short film, Web 3.0, by Kate Ray, a Journalism/Psychology major at NYU.
The 15-minute film (embedded below) is a pretty good general overview of the semantic web. That is, turning all of the data on the web into structured data so as to define relationships between it and derive meaning. Though I enjoy when Hunch co-founder Chris Dixon cautions in the film that “semantic web” is now a “marketing term that’s abused and thrown around.”
The video includes interviews with Dixon, Tim Berners-Lee, Clay Shirky, David Weinberger, Nova Spivack, Jason Shellen, Lee Feigenbaum, John Hebeler, Alon Halevy, David Karger, and Abraham Bernstein. Check it out below.
