2008 is just about to end, but looking back clearly reveals: it was an exciting year for the Semantic Web. Remember Yahoo’s BOSS strategy and Search Monkey initiave, Microsoft’s struggle over semantic search, the release of Calais, Cuil, Zemanta or Twine, the silent decline of Web 2.0 and the sudden appearance of a “Gimme-A-Break” Web 3.0 …
