It is obviously going to take something more that TrustRank – and Backlinks algos to beat Google – this hi tech is one that could begin a new disruption ..... like Link Popularity did in the late 1990s

This concept is quite difficult to summarize and do justice – but here are several good reviews that will REALLY massage your brain's intellectual resources

This is what I assumed Google Base was going to be about when it launched, but it didn't turn out that way.

Could become interesting, though it seems to be in deep alpha mode right now. I wonder who's faster though: the Google AI which analyzes natural language or semi-structured data already found online (e.g. what they do for their Q&A feature), or efforts like these which expect users to do the heavy lifting. One thing's for certain: people already create a lot of metadata as it is, only that they don't write it in easily parseable structures. But when I blog "the weather in Germany is fine today" or "Tim Berners-Lee invented the web" then I'm also adding metadata. Companies like Google know how well trying to parse this kind of data scales because it's working on *all* information out there, not just what people maintained at a single site.

Google Base lets you do that and more.
