Semantic News: to be or not to be.

“There is but one truly serious philosophical problem and that is suicide.”

-Albert Camus

Or rephrased according to the group remit, should semantic news exist? You’re a member of this group so I assume you would say yes.

But, there needs to be a point or purpose, otherwise why bother. To say it another way, there needs to be a need. Something that has been lacking in previous pushes for the semantic web and possibly a reason for its lack of reach compared with the human-readable web.

Some more questions for you all:

Why do we need semantics for news?

What problems are semantics for news going to solve?

What is needed from news ontology or ontologies?

Feel free to give your answer or respond with more questions.
