A report from the island by Yahoo's Peter Mika begins this month's episode of the Semantic Web Gang podcast, and leads to a wide-ranging discussion of the role that vocabularies and ontologies continue to play within the Semantic Web. The very nature of these ad hoc VoCamps says much, though, about the way in which attitudes have shifted away from expectations that massive all-encompassing ontologies are the best way to help machines to reason about the world around them.
