I agree completely that the semantic web is the future of web technology. However, as to the future of the internet as a whole, it is more prudent to talk about how it will be used, and what it will mean, rather than its technical structure. A semantic web will allow for computers to handle much of the day-to-day data analysis, bureaucracy and trade that is currently carried out laboriously by humans. This will lead to huge efficiencies in many areas of life, making everyone wealthier, and making any tasks involving processing or sifting through data extremely fast and simple. It also will make possible semi-intelligent computers with access to and understanding of the whole internet.
