Beyond Algorithms: Search and the Semantic Web

I was enjoying the beginning of this panel, but by the end of the panel I wasn't pleased.  I came because of Carla Thompson who's sheer brilliance on semantic search brought me out to hear more. However, it wasn't what I expected.

There was too much focus on defining semantics, rather than going beyond it. I figured this would be like Advanced Semantics 103, but it was really more for beginners. Gradually the conversation and discussions progressed into more advanced talks. However, by that time, it was time to go.

What did you think of this review?
