This paper discusses possible routes to moving the web from a collection of human readable pieces of information connecting humans, to a webthat connects computing devices based on machine-processable semantics of dataand distributed computing. The current shortcomings of web service technologyare analyzed and a new paradigm for fully enabled semantic web services isproposed which is called triple-based or triple-space computing.
