Standards moi?

Funky to Go "The power behind Google is that the company owns the algorithms used to find data from the featureless mess of HTML that exists today. The more sophisticated the data storage, the less important the algorithms, and the less edge that Google has. Microsoft, by controlling the origination of much of this data can build in the missing knowledge about the data and basically undercut the ground on which the House of Google is written...But I wouldn't be surprised if Microsoft isn't working on creating it's own metadata and ontology XML vocabulary and data model, one that it will share with others, of course, putting it at the center of knowledge-based query in the years to come."

Microsoft pushing its own standard over a W3C one, that just seems unlikely.
