The steady adoption of REST brings with it architectural properties that made the Web of Documents so successful by freeing documents from their filesystems. Now, the same thing is happening to Webs of Data. REST is opening a door to share interlinked data in the Enterprise and on the Internet. The Semantic Web builds on this and frees the information from its containers whether they are databases, documents or services.
*improved search results
*sharing information on the Web
*weaving information into and extracting it from documents
*organizing content the way you want to see it
