Huge news

So I know it’s been a while since I have posted to my blog. This news was worthy of taking the time to sit down and write something so I thought I would.

Today there was a little news story that came across the web on a Friday mid day after the markets closed and most people had tuned out at work thinking – what am I doing for the weekend?

Well that news story was this: Google purchases Metaweb. Now if you don’t know anything about Metaweb, they are a company that basically categorizes content on the web and makes it so that you can reference that content on a site easily without having to know how the name is spelled or how things relate. It is like one huge relational database for content on the web. Watch this video to get a short description of what they do and then draw your own conclusions. I think this is huge news marrying google and metaweb.
