Google, Twitter and Facebook build the semantic web – tech – 02 August 2010 – New Scientist

Solving the chicken-and-egg problem

You could argue that the semantic web is a classic example of the chicken-and-egg problem. The only way to create a web that’s intuitive for users and where the pages are comprehensible to computers, too, is for web pages to be tagged. But without tags on web pages, there is no incentive to build applications that can use them. And without the apps in place there is no reason to tag websites.

Semantics are where context meets content to drive real value of the massive about of data that is populating our day to day lives in both the workplace and the homestead.
