believes the semantic web should be about the meaning of humanity with all the richness of its cultural and historical dimensions.
reviews three approaches to the semantic web, namely of the World Wide Web
, Dublin Core
and a small group within the AI community.
then suggests that a new kind of cultural semantics is needed in order to reflect the richness of human experience.
