His definition of the Semantic Web is a broad one. If it furthers the understanding of data by machine (“semantic”) and it links in and out (“web”), it’s part of the semantic web. Ok, for the “semantic” part, Siegel also adds a more utopian requirement that “it needs to be tagged in a royalty-free format, governed by a nonprofit organization, that all software programs can understand”.
Pull does an impressive job of pulling together a number of trends around one common wish. It truly is the book that was missing from our landscape, to articulate the benefits of semantic technologies to businesses and society. This is recommended reading to all builders and users of the next web, and by that I mean anyone with a web access. We have the right vision now, so let’s get to work to realize it.
From Greg Boutin's revies of the book.
