Oops. That's supposed to be 'you and me'.

One day I will remember that "me" is the object. Or whatever it's called. I've been particularly good at explaining *why* the English language is so arcane.

Doesn't Google keep getting into trouble for suggesting things like this? Admittedly, they haven't the discussion into the social-web arena; they might have more success getting it through. (Do you think they would give you and I a reward for suggesting this, Valeria? :-) I don't know about you, but I'm not going to hold my breath on that...)

Social web, meet semantic web. I don't know if anyone else has put it together, Valeria, but that was a bit of genius. :-)

Ah, you're so inspiring! :-)

I like the idea of networking and search converging in the future, but don't you think it might be limiting in some ways? Like if Amazon only recommends books that people in your network are reading? I think a network should be an important supplemental tool to go hand-in-hand with much of what we do on the internet, including search, but I'm not sure they should be so inextricably linked.
