I continue to be excited about the accomplishments and potential of the Semantic Web and related technologies. In this talk, I'll review some of those accomplishments, present some applications, discuss various emerging technologies (Wikidata, GeoSPARQL, SILK, PROV, ontology design patterns, Big Data, stream processing, etc.), identify some things that are still missing, and perhaps offer some predictions for the future.
