“…Since (supposedly), all of the above is semanticized and speaks the same lingua franca as the original journalistic content, the process is largely automatized.Great, but where is the value for the news organization, you might ask? First of all, a trusted publication (and a trusted byline) offering such super-curation to its readers is much more likely to attract a solvent audience: readers willing to pay for a service no one else offers. …modern tagging, structuring and linking. Such products would carry great value because they would be unique, based on trust, selection and relevance.”

While this is not incorrect, it would have been more effective if the news media experts had read about hyperlinks and semantic web, way back in the last century. They have rediscovered the roots of the WWW.
