'a step closer'

Toward the Semantic Web

If the current Web is like a giant text file - which you can search for instances of particular words – the Semantic Web would be like a database, where every item of information is categorized, and new queries can combine categories in any imaginable way. You could, for instance, search the Web for a restaurant within a mile of a railway station in a town with a theater that offers vegetarian lasagna and at least one lamb dish. And if you wanted the restaurant's menu, you could pull up just the menu – not page after page of review sites that happened to use the word "menu."

Is your data safe? (2)

  • Official Google Blog: A new approach to China

    Like many other well-known organizations, we face cyber attacks of varying degrees on a regular basis. In mid-December, we detected a highly sophisticated and targeted attack on our corporate infrastructure originating from China that resulted in the theft of intellectual property from Google.

  • Official Google Enterprise Blog: Keeping your data safe

    This attack may understandably raise some questions, so we wanted to take this opportunity to share some additional information and assure you that Google is introducing additional security measures to help ensure the safety of your data.

Related (1/13/10):
  • Google's half-truths and a plea for perspective

    Coordinated enough to get at GMail's internal data store, if only the one with e-mail headers. If that doesn't scare you, it should. What Google does with their .cn site is relatively minor news.
