   RE: [xml-dev] WSIO vs. Semantic Web

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

It may be overspoken, but it is a real controversy. 
There are parties who believe that the public focus 
of the W3C on the Semantic Web takes resources away 
from work on the more immediate requirements for 
commercialization (eg, web services).  The quote 
from Tim Bray is unfortunate out of context, but the 
story is real.

W3C mission: Research or standardization?  The 
dues paying members feel that they have a right 
to decide.   When Festa asked me, I told him 
DARPA was a powerful player in this and actively 
supports the Semantic Web, and that if nothing 
else, gives it a credible customer.  Yet, if the 
W3C is to serve its membership, it must listen 
and respond if these members make a case that 
the Semantic Web is not where they want their 
dollars to be spent.

Looks like the beginnings of an invented controversy.  "AI-Nut Semantic
Webbers vs. Greedy Conglomerate Web Service-ites".  I would hate to see
people fall for this ploy to write exciting copy and end up polarizing
their opinions.
