RE: NPR, Godel, Semantic Web

But I also need the precise difference between 
Simon's thumb and mine.

There is a lot of experience with semantic 
networks, prolog, etc.  I don't think the semantic 
web falls apart on technology, just that there 
are limits both in cost and competitive advantage, 
and there are issues where precision may be 
very important so being able to resolve differences 
in the knowledge bases is important.  I don't 
think Godel incompleteness is that big a deal.

Actually, your thumb would be pretty good if you had a reasonable idea of
the moon's distance.
