Ignorance & Semantic Uniformity

Tuesday, February 7th, 2012

I saw Volkswagen Vehicles Ontology by Martin Hepp, in a tweet by Bob DuCharme today.

Being a former owner of a 1972 Super Beetle, I checked under

vvo:AudioAndNavigation

Only to find that cassette player wasn’t one of the options:

The class of audio and navigation choices or components (CD/DVD/SatNav, a “MonoSelectGroup” in automotive terminology), VW ID: 1

I searched the ontology for “Beetle” and came up empty.

Is ignorance the path to semantic uniformity?
