The concept is just so appealing. Under RDF schema, we can theoretically retrieve data from the entire Internet. However, when finally we got to surf in the Semantic Web, we got also overwhelmed by the astonishing amount of information. The things (subjects) are connected in a way beyond human senses.No matter how much time we would like to devote, we must see the faith that on the last day of our life we would still not be able to exhaust the search results from one keyword.

This is a problem which has existed for as long as there have been collections of documents. Over the years librarians have come up with many tools for dealing with this problem and many of these tools have been adapted for the digital era. Things like references (links), indexes (tags) and categories have been used in computer programs to ease the location of information. The art of a good note taking program is providing facilities for the user to be able to locate an item within their notes even though they have forgotten almost everything about it.
