The Semantic Web: 3.0 & Counting

What is the semantic web, you ask? Well kiddies, it’s the fancy shmancy term for all the cool data that makes your favorite online features – like Facebook Connect, blogging from a bookmarklet (I do love me some Press This) and finding related topics on Wikipedia – work. And, more precisely, it’s the fancy shmancy term for all the relationships between that data.

Still don’t get it? Never fear, Mashable is here. Check out this great video explanation they found from grad student Kate Ray, featuring some of the rock stars of what is commonly known as “Web 3.0”.
