"What we need is not structured XHTML web pages or more dublin core meta-tags in HTML; what we need is a browser that expands on the "add a description" textbox on the bookmarks form, and gently induce the operator to incrementally fill out just a bit more information about that fave link (by rewarding them somehow) and then trading that information transparently via P2P RDF! Instead of Google being some massive keyword database rating pages by word and link counts, it is a miner for the hearts of gold among all these drifting resource descriptions.
The whole point and purpose of it all is that the arcane format of these RDFs remains invisible to the annotators, and the annotations are invisible to the webpages authors (both living and dead) who's once upon a time works the bookmarkers are semanticalizing. Enter more bottom-feeder blo.gs and other robots to sift, coallate and refine this dualspace of crosslinked metadata, and the visible strata of ill-formed websites starts to take on real structure."
Blog Fad, on how the popularity of information found in the blogosphere must be distinguished from its reliability - the blogosphere exposes "sociological truth" rather than truth itself; and on the central importance of the ever-developing tools that graft onto blogs such as RSS, Daypop, PageRank, Blogrolls, Technorati, Blogdex, blo.gs, Trackback, et al., making the circulation of knowledge much more efficient than before.
My weblog now seems to be accessible via a Japanese URL: http://pack.soksok.jp/y/.ade/0110772/ - I wonder what for. Wait, not just my blog -- every link seems to be converted. Perhaps it is an intermediating service that lets you browse anonymously.
