Hi,

This is a bit off-topic, but I was wondering if anybody on this forums had some thought about the decision of Talis to pull of the semantic web arena (or at least to shut down Kasabi).
One could think that it's still too early for a consistent market for "semantic services".
Or it may be that this market is problematic per se: things works well for open data (or public data). Maybe there is not a consistent advantage in "publishing data" for the commercial sector.
Maybe a market place for "data" and "apis" doesn't make much sense, as people looks for something more defined, like a more coherent ecosystem of data and tools, relative to a specific topic.

Any thoughts ?

best,
Andrea Splendiani
