The future of the Semantic Web lies not in the ubiquity, addressability and global sharing of information but rather in localised, information spaces and their interactions. These information spaces will be made at a much more personal level and not necessarily adhere to globally agreed semantics and structures but rely more upon ad hoc and evolving semantic structures.
