What about Data?

Semantic Web: Gripes and A Way Forward "So, Guha asked, why shouldn’t I be able to send a software agent to and pull all that stuff out without having to poke around their idiosyncratic web pages? This was in 1998, and I still wonder why I can’t do this, it seems like a no-brainer. Also, it seems like this is more or less exactly what they made RDF for; someone invents a basic bunch of property names, and then any company can invent their own special properties, and you need a little bit of RDF-schema-like machinery to make new property names a little more useful."
