Google Map Time Machine
HistoryPin (http://www.historypin.com/) might be what some of you are looking for. From their FAQ: "Currently, Historypin is made up of photographic images, videos, audio clips and descriptive and narrative text. Photographic images can be pinned directly to the Historypin map by users. These images can be of any location - outdoors or indoors - at any time in the past. Some of these images, if they are taken outdoors, at street level and at certain angles, will be able to be layered onto Street View (this is a bonus, not a requirement). Audio and video content can be pinned to the map by users. These should be pinned to the location and date where they were recorded. Any kind of descriptive or narrative text can be added to images, audio or video."

Tim Berners-Lee: The next web
My question about the semantic web is this: Who chooses what piece of information is related to what piece of information and why? For example, two pieces of information made be labeled as "income" data and linked that way, but who decides whether they are actually both referring to the same thing? Income is defined and measured very differently in different contexts. Unless some discipline is introduced to this idea linkages could quickly become deceptive and correlations could be noted that don't actually exist. Thoughts?
