Video: Inside the Semantic Web with Sir Tim Berners-Lee

ZDNet's David Berlind recorded a great interview with the inventor of the World Wide Web.

ZDNet's David Berlind got some time with Sir Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of the World Wide Web. Topics covered include the Semantic Web (see also: Microformats), mashups, and the benefits of open standards versus proprietary development environments such as Flash and Silverlight.

"We wouldn't have had the Web," Berners-Lee says, had it started as bunch of competing solutions. And as the mobile Web gains momentum, with its closed access devices (mobile phones), we're in danger of a platform fragmentation that could put a damper on innovation. "We must keep an open interface platform. The important thing is that the standards are royalty-free." Play the video for the whole story.
