Thanks everyone for participating in the #SemWebRox Community Challenge! Looking at the results (which have been pasted at the end of this article for convenience), I’m struck once again by the diversity of points of view in the Semantic Web community on what the key value of its technology really is. Over at Semantic University […]

By   /  June 25, 2012  /  Data Blogs | Information From Enterprise Leaders, Data Education, Smart Data News, Articles, & Education  /  No Comments

As a community, we Semantic Webbers have done a poor job communicating our value clearly and concisely. Last week, I stated the case in more detail at the Enterprise Semantics Blog, and Aaron Bradley continued it over at Google Plus (here and here). Today, I bring you a challenge.

Semantic Web Community: I’m disappointed in us!  Or at least in our group marketing prowess.  We have been failing to capitalize on two major trends that everyone has been talking about and that are directly addressable by Semantic Web technologies!  For shame. I’m talking of course about Big Data and NoSQL.  Given that I’ve already […]
