We host a number of blogs, some more active than others. One of the least active (although it still gets a surprising amount of traffic) has been our CTO blog. However, I am happy to say that Colin Britton started blogging on semantic technologies yesterday. As a co-founder and CTO of Metatomix he led the development of a commercial product based on RDF – a not very well understood W3C semantic web standard. Colin’s first post on the CTO blog starts a series that will help shed a little more light on semantic technologies and their practical applications.

Some of you know that I remain skeptical of the new world “Semantic Web” vision, but I do think semantic technologies are important and have a lot to offer, and Colin will help you see why. Check out his first post and let him know what you think about semantic technologies and what you would like to know about.
