Google acquires Metaweb
From the Google Blog: "Over time we've improved search by deepening our understanding of queries and web pages. The web isn't merely words - it's information about things in the real world, and understanding the relationships between real-world entities can help us deliver relevant information more quickly. Today, we've acquired Metaweb, a company that maintains an open database of things in the world. Working together we want to improve search and make the web richer and more meaningful for everyone"
