The next Internet giant company will be linking open data and providing open access to repositories, in the process seamlessly combining both paid for subscriptions, Creative Commons or similar license based or open source software schemes.

Revenues will be generated among other things from online advertising streams currently not utilized by Google or Yahoo!

In the big scheme of things this company will redefine the concept of internet search to provide access to deep(er) web levels of data and information for which users will be willing to pay an annual flat fee subscription.

Sound improbable? Non-profit organizations dedicated to providing global open access will soon start exploring just such business schemes to determine if it is feasible to fund and maintain the server farms, hard and software to do just that.
