RDF and OWL are Yahoo's Secret Weapons
Semantic Web Hype "At just over 1 year into my work at Yahoo! we have reached the first use in production of OWL and RDF in a small way and are looking at further steps, none of which I’m revealing...we should show how you don’t need to boil the ocean of semantics such as applying a big pile of technologies or requiring something fragile like a single web-wide ontology - wrong, wrong wrong. Start from concrete data-centric approaches that build up to use layers of technology solutions to different problems as they emerge, only if needed and demonstrating usefulness at each stage."
