Top 10 Semantic Web Products of 2008-Read Write Web

” 8. AdaptiveBlue

Disclosure: AdaptiveBlue’s founder Alex Iskold is a feature writer at RWW.

AdaptiveBlue are makers of the Firefox plugin, BlueOrganizer. As we wrote in January this year, the basic idea behind BlueOrganizer is that it gives you added information about webpages you visit and offers useful links based on the subject matter.

Over the past year the company has been working on a new product, called Glue. Launched last month, Glue is a more social networking oriented version of BlueOrganizer – it connects you to your friends based around things like books, music, movies, stars, artists, stocks, wine, restaurants, and more. We think the company has diversified smartly in 2008, by integrating social networking and mobile functionality into its products.

9. Zemanta Zemanta is a blogging tool which harnesses semantic technology to add relevant content to your posts. While it didn’t make either of our ‘Semantic Apps to Watch’ lists in November, a number of commenters pointed it out as something they use. In September we covered a major upgrade to Zemanta’s service, allowing users to specify the sources they want to see in the suggestions list that Zemanta provides. Users can now incorporate their own social networks, RSS feeds, and photos into their blog posts.
