Orri Erling, writing on on the Open Link Software Blog discussed the business of Semantically Linked Data. Several business related questions are considered in the article:
- Why is there no single dominant vendor?
- Can there be a positive reinforcement cycle, or is this an up-front infrastructure investment?
- Will the web of structured data parallel the development of web 2.0?
- Is there a specifically semantic market or business model, or will semantic technology be exploited under established business models?
