will be back on the line. Collaboration is what it chooses. The Working Group issues a very reasonable report after one year's effort. Now, it is profession's turn seeing how well they can cooperate.


Some of the recommendations in the report have a certain influence over information management on the internet.

ReadWriteWeb - Semantic Web: What Is The Killer App?

以我個人認知,就目前而言,最有效率搜尋已知的資訊要靠個人化的工具 (如︰Custom Search Engine、Twine 等),而未知的就要靠專業的社群網 (Wikipedia, ChaCha 等) 和 clustering search engine (如︰Clusty) 來縮小搜尋範圍。電腦分析的發展仍在嬰兒階段,效率低一截,不過卻非常豐富和方便,很適合作一般查找資料之用。

As far as I know, in the present, the most effective searching method for known information is personalized/custom application, such as Custom Search Engine, Twine, etc, while for unknown information, social network filled with experts should be relied on, such as wikipedia, ChaCha, etc, and clustering search engine, such as Clusty, so as to narrow the searching areas. The development of other form of semantic web is still in infant stage. Its efficiency is very low, however, very convenient and the information is extremely rich. It is very suitable for general use for information.

特別期待更多元化的 online materials (如︰提供 streaming media) 和 e-book 在新一年的發展... (其實即是電子化罷了)

High expectation on the development and implement of more diversified online materials, such as providing streaming media, and e-book in the new year... (actually, it is digitization)
