What is it?
Semantic MediaWiki is an ongoing open source project to develop a Semantic Wiki Engine.
In other words, it is one of the impportant early innovations leading up to the Wikipedia 3.0 (Web 3.0) vision.
The project and software is called "Semantic MediaWiki"
ontoworld.org is just one site using the technology
Wikipedia might become another site using the technology
The hosting of the Semantic Mediawiki, i.e. the Web 3.0 version of of Wikipedia’s platform, has been taken over by Wikia, a commercial venture founded by Wikiepdia’s own founder Jimmy Wales. This opens up a huge conflict of interest, which is, namely, the fact that Wikipedia’s founder is running a commercial venture that takes creative improvements to Wikipedia’s platform, e.g. Semantic Mediawiki, and transfer those improvements to Wikia, Jimmy Wales’ own commercial for-profit venture.
