The semantic Web has failed to produce communities, quantity, or quality. Very little public information is presently available in the resource description format (RDF) or Web Ontology Language (OWL) data formats, and semantic Web services are few and far between. This leaves the existing Web with very little semantic structure. Named-entity Web would make use of existing Web technologies and provide direct benefits with a far lower participation cost than current semantic technologies require. Without such a radical simplification, the semantic Web continues to see limited participation and few compelling applications.
