While one can question my sanity for attempting to educate markets on the free and open Web (we have many times)—‘tis the season to be jolly’, fearless, or perhaps both, so in the spirit of the holidays let’s polish off the predictive analytics in the neural network we call the human brain and make a prediction: <> Hindsight will prove 2012 to have been the inflection point for the semantic enterprise,
representing a generational change at the confluence of information technology and organizational management.
Never underestimate the power of good will.
Just wanted to share this interview and article with Jenny Zaino over at Semanticweb.com on my recent patent and related IP. A detailed paper on this topic is nearing completion and will post a brief and description in the next Read More
On analyzing technology and software patents…..One of the most destructive messages our culture broadcasts is that anything that cannot be reduced to 140 characters shouldn’t move forward. If that were true, most important technology companies wouldn’t exist……. Many large software companies, software developers, venture capitalists, and academics have publicly denounced intellectual property rights for software and processes. While each of the common arguments have valid points, and I do believe we need foundational reform in IP, part of which is reflected in Kyield, I see a much higher probability of technical innovation providing solutions to these challenges than our current political system.

Baby boomers like myself clearly recall the tumultuous years leading up to the Bicentennial of the United States. The world we grew up in was near the peak of the industrial revolution, dominated by the aftermath of the Great Depression, WW2, and the Cold War. We were raised in a culture that had witnessed first-hand the power of a unified government, which led to the victory of fascism in our parent’s generation, followed by a round trip to the moon in our own. In the childhood of my generation, nothing was impossible with sufficient government power. Read More
Given the systemic nature and scale of the financial crisis, and in consideration of the poor ongoing economic conditions, it’s clear that the industry, political process, and regulators have all fallen short of achieving the individual mission of each, particularly in consideration of current technological capabilities.
For the past several months financial institutions have been trying to convince regulators that they should not be labeled a Systemically Important Financial Institution (SIFI). The process of implementing the 2010 Dodd-Frank law in the U.S. has resulted in spin offs in an attempt to avoid increased U.S. regulation, while the new global rules for multi-national banks on top of Basel III, including surcharges and increased capital ratios, is resulting in a comprehensive rethink of the fundamental assumptions surrounding the global banking model.

I wanted to share a project I initiated earlier this year that we have temporarily named the New Mexico Analytics Cluster. Essentially the project relates to organizing the broad analytics cluster here in NM into a functional global leader worthy of the science and technology. Initial feedback from quite a few of the related companies,… Read More
Structural integrity in organizations, increasingly reflected by data in computer networking, has never been more important. The decision dimension is expanding exponentially due to data volume, global interconnectedness, and increased complexity, thus requiring much richer context, well-engineered structure, far more automation, and increasingly sophisticated techniques.
