O’Reilly Media (, the current name for the geek publishing giant founded by Tim O’Reilly, has finally joined the Semantic Web.  O’Reilly’s coining of the term “Web 2.0″ and early misunderstandings of the Semantic Web stack lead some to think that he didn’t see much value in machine readable information.  That seems to have changed, at least in within <a href=””>O’Reilly Labs</a>.


I’ve been talking with my son this week about the importance of words and what they mean. He is studying the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and the Articles of Confederation in his 5th grade history class – he was so inspired by reading those documents that he asked me to take him to the Library of Congress on our trip to Virginia next week. I was suitably impressed and was also reminded of the relationship between concepts and constructs.
