So Duane, when you say a true semantic web, how do you define true in 
terms of the RDF model theory ? Do you agree that RDF model theory does 
not claim to provide meaning and only truth ? If so, how would an agent 
automate the process you describe below ?    (01)

BTW - How's it looking this year for Marcus Naslund and the Canucks ?    (02)
