Up to Design Issues A road map for the future, an architectural plan untested by anything except thought experiments. This was written as part of a requested road map for future Web design, from a level of 20,000ft. It was spun off from an Architectural overview for an area which required more elaboration than that overview could afford.

The Semantic Web is based on the relatively straightforward idea that to be able to integrate (link) data on the Web we must have some mechanism for knowing what relationships hold among the data, and how that relates to some “real world” context. The following is a lot of detail that comes from this simple idea. To answer this question properly, let me start back in the early Web era. While I’m going to do some potentially boring personal history, I’ll note the key ideas as I go along. Circa 1995, my research group began playing with an idea (first proposed by my then student Sean Luke now a faculty member at GMU ) that if web markup (it was all HTML back then) contained some machine readable “hints” to the computer, then we could do a better job of Web tasks like search, query, and faceted browsing.
