Re: ROR files in action - focusLook.com
Martin, Interesting article! False information is a problem with any self-authored information. But I think ROR can actually help solve a part of this problem: By encouraging websites to describe their objects ROR provides additional data for search engines can process (to check for consistancy of the information, for example). Also, text on a webpage can refer to an object in the ROR file for futher qualification. So the more a search engine understands about a website, the less that website can fool the search engine. Also, ROR provides several objects that will generate webs of "observational" metadata. For example the Review object enables a site or blog owner to express an opinion about a website, blog, blog entry, product, service, etc. This kind of data can be very valuable, not individually, but as a whole.
