Can anyone recommend any books to catch up on "the vision" of a semantic
web? I have gone over some of W3C's RDF stuff, and a couple other things on
the web. But from what I have gone over (not much), the complexty of the
system make its hard to imagine to be implimented by the normal web
developer (not trying to degrade web developers, but question the
specifcation). Recommendations?
