Thought of the day, originally posted at #w3c (IRC chat)

I used to think of the web as a web of documents, but now I see it as a web of documents and web of data. I took what I saw, but maybe I never understood it from the beginning. See TBL's original proposal. By random chance I picked up a book titled "Intelligent Databases: Object-Oriented, Deductive Hypermedia Technologies" by Parsaye et. al. After reading some of it, I'm seeing some trends. It seems that the web is pulling a lot of ideas from it and doing it in a distributed fashion. now to figure out what is going on today...simple answers, I don't know
