The semantic web in News/journalism and Academic

Sociological Abstracts - "The Role of Metadata in the Statistical Knowledge Network: An Emerging Research Agenda"
When using the sociological abstracts database i found very little information, but there was one abstract that dealt with the semantic web. The only problem with the specific abstract was that it focused more on metadata rather than the semantic web. Although it didn't strictly give a basic rundown of the semantic web, it did inform the reader about how the semantic web is important to metadata.

CBCA Reference - "The Semantic Web"
This source seems like it would be very informative, except the summary is far to small for the reader to come to a fair decision on the topic. From what I can see, "the semantic web" provides very general information on the semantic web, which is very informative for someone with little knowledge on the topic.

CPI - "I know what you mean...the semantic Web: a new form of Web content that is meaningful to computers will unleash a revolution of new possibilities."

This site seems like it could be very informative for the reader. The abstract informs the reader that you a new search engine is going to be created that breaks down your search to help you find exactly what you are looking for. Instead of finding information on the wrong topic with the same keywords, it would breakdown what you are looking for into different groupings in order to help you find your specific topic.
