I can imagine web services holding assertions: directories already hold name value pairs, which are simple assertions in their own way. I wouldn't say that the semantic web *is* the TMS. That was why I said that it should be possible to publish locally derived assertions globally. However at some point you'll want software to operate over these assertions: TMS are a good tool for that, though I think Tim Berner's Lee is of the view that the semantic web isn't logic/ai programming. The semantic web isn't just data either (I hope anyway). Maybe a TMS is more than what is needed for most: "assertion/annotation processors" or "just a program" might be a better way to put it. -Bill ----- Bill de hOra : InterX : bdehora@i...
