The semantic web

1. The Semantic Web; an IntroductionAn easy accesable source. With a small introduction, a table of contents that is easy to use. The paragraphs are easy to comprhend and simple enough launuage for the common user. 9/10 For info : http://infomesh.net/2001/swintro/#whatIsSw

2. W3C Semantic WebA brief description of what the semantic web is at the start of the site is the only helpful part. The subject that follows is more about news and event on the Sematic Web, not about explaining what it is. 5/10 For info : http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/

3. Semantic Web; A Roadmap
The aim of this site was to give a high-level plan of the architecture of the Semantic Web. It reached it's goal, but in an unprofessional way. The site was not particularly attractive, but futhermore it wasn't in the most easy to read format either. Graphs were shown, but were much to compliccated to understand for the common user. 6/10
For info : http://www.w3.org/DesignIssues/Semantic.html

4. The Semantic Web: 1-2-3
This site was not only easy to navigate and understand, but it covered the same issues as more complex 'introduction to the semantic web' site, and incorporated HUMOR into it. This is unheard of for boring internet information. Images made the expirence easy on the eyes, and the "Tips, Snippits, and Answers" section fufilled the rest of my concerns with the semantic web. Overall this was the best site that I came apoun, it was 8th on the first page of my google search. 10/10

5. Under Google Definitions for Semantic Web -
This gave me 5 sources to find the meaning of Semantic Web. I used the first one to exmplify the general jist of this method. It gave me a 4 sentence gernal definition for the term, it gernal answerd my question, yet not detailed. 4/10

I believe that this is a good website when learning about the semantic web because it not only keeps you interested due to its humour but also it is very easy to follow and use. The actual page is layed out very well and for beginners this is the perfect site to relate to. Overall I think that this one is the best one I came across because it was straightforward and answered any questions that I had.
