Guiding Principles for the Open Semantic Enterprise 

An open semantic enterprise is an organization that uses the languages and standards of the semantic Web, including RDF, RDFS, OWL, SPARQL and others to integrate existing information assets, using the best practices of linked data and the open world assumption, and targeting knowledge management applications.

The best consultants are not merely order takers–nor should they be.

I’ll let that one sink in for a minute because it tends to rub some people the wrong way. Many people erroneously believe that consultants should always just do what they’re told to do. Clients are paying us good money and, especially in this economy, who has the temerity to say no.

Here are four good reasons that the best consultants will not simply fall in line when a client asks them to do something entirely inappropriate
