Predictive Texts: the future of information management

Prediction number 2: the battle of the identifiers or the age of pointing at things

In the world of the Semantic Web, until you have named something you cannot do much useful with it.

‘We will not be able to work with concepts until we have pointed at each new thing (and like Adam in the Bible I guess) give it a unique identity. This is an age of naming, it is an age of pointing at things.’
Tom Coates
