August 2009: How Google beat Amazon and Ebay to the Semantic Web

geek ramblings links to Paul Ford looks into the crystal ball to imagine a future where Google has harnessed an evolved web to become the economy.

It's between you and the seller, anonymously, perhaps even tax-free if you have the right account number, no one takes a cut. Not using it to buy items began to be considered backwards. Just as the regular Google search negotiated the logical propositions of the Semweb, the Personal Agent did the same - it just did it every few minutes, and on its own, according to pre-set rules.

Tough to imagine a world without salesmen. I only shop online for books, electronics, plane tickets, hotels, phone service, insurane, car rentals...

Sadly, these developments will be too late for Mark Guthrie.
