Title Gardens of Meaning ... or why the Semantic Web is for Vulcans
Abstract The presentation works towards the motivation behind the Gardens of Meaning metaphor, via an informal and somewhat ironic poke at some of the hype associated with the Semantic Web vision. The joke is that the Semantic Web depends on people being able to share their ?conceptualisations? with each other, and then express those conceptualisations formally using an ontology language, neither of which is easy ? if only we were Vulcans, we could mind meld and, of course, we would have dedicated our lives to pure logic.
