(Newspaper comment) Everyone is creating and storing content, we are inundated with data and have become addicted to content.
From Enterprise Content Management to Health Records to Analytics to the Classifieds, there is a lot to make sense of and every day it grows exponentially.
And our delivery methods are more pervasive and some would say invasive.
The new challenge is making sense of it all, deriving true value, and delivering it to the end user, be it a researcher, a general web user, or law enforcement and military working in the field, context drives good decisions and semantics provides a piece of the solution.

I like to say there are five check points for determining if your application is taking real advantage of semantics. These five points working in concert can bring your content and data to life through the richness of their relationships.
