How does a site like PeekYou, whose goal is to re-index the public web around people, intersect with the Semantic Web?
To hear CEO Michael Hussey tell it, it’s this: “The way I thought about the Semantic Web since Day One is that it’s about deriving meaning from pages,” says Hussey. “To have meaning you have to know who the person who writes this blog is or who is referenced in this article. That’s how humans think. When you meet someone, you ask where he is from, what he does. The personal layer is what drives the future of the semantic web.”
And the personal layer is very much where PeekYou is at.
