Inventor of the web talks about access to data

This is a short interview with the inventor of the web, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, on his vision of Semantic Web. He talks about the use of RDF for sharing information via a semantic "bus".

I found this extremely interesting given that we at FAO have been working on similar sharing or exposing of data using the "information bus" concept for sometime now. I took the above image from our article which discusses the idea of a semantic layer on top of existing resource bases (databases) in the context of diverse Ethics related information. Read the full article from: ftp://ftp.fao.org/docrep/fao/009/ag869e/ag869e00.pdf.
