Google buys Metaweb

If there was any previous doubt about whether 2010 will be known as the year that the Semantic Web came of age, this acquisition seals the deal.

I wonder if my life would be different if I had listened to my wife's advice and walked up to Danny Ayers at sci foo in 2008 and asked for a job... His three word intro "just, an, engineer" still inspires me.

Well done Danny and friends!

Alright you private naysayers.. Being acquired isn't necessarily a good thing (I think it is in this case..) and yes, the only different between this year and the last 10 years for the semantic web is that this is a much bigger year for hype and publicity - but, like it or not tech-people, publicity ~is important!
