« Web Poll Results: Killer App for Semantic Web technology | Main | Rumors of the Death of Indian Outsourcing - Are Greatly Exaggerated »

It is indeed true that consumers buy holes rather than drill bits.

Is the Semantic Web (other than in a few unusual examples such as Twine) really aimed at consumers, though? Or is it aimed at the companies that will build the applications that consumers will buy?

Are we selling holes to consumers, or are we the steelworks selling drill bits to Black & Decker?

Mathew Ingram

That's a good point, Paul. In a way, I think what makes it hard for some people to wrap their heads around the Semantic Web is that it's about building the tools that underlie or enable other tools -- meta-tools.

Even if outsourcing to India is dieing (which I highly doubt), there will always be another country that can do the job for less than it can be done on home soil.company logo design
