Panel: Semantic Web Death Match 2011: Industry vs. Academia vs. Standards 

The past couple of years have been an "interesting time" for the Semantic Web - with both the positive and negative aspects that that implies.  We have seen new standards emerging from the W3C, new proposals out of Google and Facebook which have different visions for the future, and a growing application space struggling to make head or tail out of all of it. OWL 2.0? RDFa? who controls the vision of the Semantic Web's future?
