14354982 story Google Acquires Metaweb 63 Posted by Soulskill on Friday July 16, 2010 @04:33PM from the nothing-to-do-with-neal-stephenson dept. eldavojohn writes "A startup called Metaweb (looks like an ontological, entity-based approach to Web 2.0 tagging) has been acquired by Google. You can find out what they're about from a super marketing fluff video they put together. The neat thing about Metaweb is that the database of entities it has is free. Will Google be able to make Metaweb work on their omniscient scale, or was this just Google making sure a startup doesn't become yet another player in search?"
