US Government Understands the Semantic Web

Taxonomy’s not just design, it’s an art "If anyone understands the acronym soup of Web services, it’s Michael C. Daconta. He’s director of Web and technology services for systems integrator APG McDonald Bradley Inc. of McLean, Va. As part of that job, Daconta is chief architect of the Defense Intelligence Agency’s Virtual Knowledge Base, a project to compile a directory of Defense Department data through Extensible Markup Language ontologies. "

"GCN: Will everyone use a single taxonomy for one big semantic Web, or will organizations build their own semantic Webs?

DACONTA: There clearly will not be just one semantic Web. A lot of people are looking at taxonomies, so they have to be careful. "
