What I envision as a first step towards a true semantic web is a two step search interface, powered by ontological work, to disambiguate.
Users experience would be like this:

User searches for term “Washington”
Search index information accessed.
Search mechanism recognizes more than one ontological node covering the plurality of search results.
Search index returns the ontological nodes to searcher with localized labels.  The returning results might state something like” We have found more than one type of “washington” in the result collection.  Please let us know which of the following interest you:
  • Mammal<-not living (George Washington)
  • Mammal<- living (Denzel Washington)
  • Mineral<-Geographical_Region<-State_Region (Washington State)
  • Mineral<-Geographical_Region<-City (Washington, DC)
  • Mineral<Man_Made_Structure (Washington University, Washington Monument)
  • Mineral<-Gepgraphical_Feature (Mt Washington)


The user could then disambiguate the search and refine their result set to a subset of the original string matching.  Like Google, interactions with results for each ontological node set would be the basis for further refinement of the search results over time.  The search engine would monitor interactions (tracking successful and bounced searches) and the algorithm would mutate over time to always provide the most relevant result set for the majority of users.
