Submission + - MetaWeb to construct an open Semantic Web database

prostoalex writes: "The New York Times runs an article on AI export Danny Hillis and others starting a company called MetaWeb, that at first glance looks like Wikipedia with tagging, but on the second is really an open platform for Semantic Web, available to other developers. NYT explains: "That would make it possible for programmers and Web developers to write programs allowing Internet users to pose queries that might produce a simple, useful answer rather than a long list of documents. Since it could offer an understanding of relationships like geographic location and occupational specialties, Freebase might be able to field a query about a child-friendly dentist within 10 miles of one's home and yield a single result.""
