funny. not too long ago, i decided against posting a longish discussion on annotea and it’s relationship to smartags.

the technology review has a new article on annotea and e.commerce :

“Annotea’s concept itself is not new. A commercial application called Third Voice attracted attention two years ago with a similar but proprietary technology. With no clear revenue plan, Third Voice became yet another dot-com casualty in April.

The W3C hopes that by pushing the technology as an open-source solution, Annotea will take root as a useful “metadata” application–a way to provide information about online information online.”

note to self: check-out annozilla.
