We propose the development of a Global Semantic Graph (GSG) as the foundation for future information and collaboration-centric applications and services. It would provide a single abstraction for storing, processing and communicating information based on globally interlinked semantic resources. The GSG adopts approaches and methods from the Semantic Web and thus facilitates a better information sharing abstraction.
