Here at ReadWriteWeb, we find the Semantic Web fascinating. We write about it a lot. What is the semantic web? The way we explain it is that it’s a paradigm advocating that the meaning of content on the web be made machine readable.
Why would you want to do that? Because once the “meaning” of text is automatically discernible, there’s a whole new world of things we can do with content on the web. Far out things that full text search for the mere presence of keywords would never be able to accomplish. Who’s working on the semantic web and how can you meet them? Read on.
In November, 2007 we published a list of 10 Semantic Web companies to watch. Then, one year later, we published a new list for 2008 of Semantic Web companies to watch.
Based on those lists, and reader suggestions in comments of other companies that should be watched, we present to you a list of 50+ Twitter users who work at Semantic Web companies. If you find this sector as interesting as we do, you might want to add some of these people to your microblogging community. You can click through the arrows in the iframe below to scroll through all the accounts and add the people listed. RSS readers who’d like to see the list should click through to the full post.
A handful of these are company accounts, but most are accounts from individual employees. Want to suggest anyone we missed? (We know there are lots we’ve missed!) Let us know in comments. You can also meet the RWW crew on Twitter.
If this iFrame is driving you batty, see also this old list of links to all the accounts displayed below.
