foldier: a step toward the semantic-web

Waving the Web

In Tim Berners-Lee’s book, Weaving the Web , he describes a future for the internet in what he calls the semantic web  (Tim Berners-Lee’s is the sole inventor of the WorldWideWeb).

We here at Foldier are always looking for the next advancement of such a concept and have implemented one of the many steps to produce Berners-Lee’s concept of the semantic web.

Berners-Lee describes a portion of his dreams as:

Collaborations extend to computers.  Machines become capable of analyzing all the data on the Web – the content, links, and transactions between people and computers.

With the integration of our Foldier sPressions, the data sources that interest you are brought directly to your sPression home.
No longer do you have to search endlessly for an article of particular interest to you or your friends.
Over time  – analyzing your decisions on what you sPress and what you ignore, the search will be perfected and fine tuned (this feature will be included in the new Beta version of Foldier).

foldier will use collective decisions to present its users with exactly the information they need.  Instead of a prolonged search dictated by algorithms, internet traffic, or whatever fairy dust a SEO sprinkles on, you define data sources, you read, you share.  In short, your valued information finds you.  The information you want is as simple as clicking on the Review Collected Items in your Foldier home page.

We here at Foldier are in awe of Mr. Berner-Lee’s foresight and could not imagine in the almost decade since our reading of Weaving the Web that in some small way we would help carry on his torch.
