We all know the semantic web is coming, but what the heck is a "semantic web". The short course is machines understanding laguage in all its idiom and human vulnerabilities.
If "machines capable of understanding language" sounds a little Terminator 2 or confusing read this excellent primer from XML.com.
BTW, if you are thinking the semantic web changes everything from how we design and develop websites to how we think about information architexture and content marketer you are CORRECT.
If you have thoughts on what all of that means to how we did the ditches we need to actually create Internet marketing please share your thoughts, ideas and comments :). M
