Danny Ayers is looking for a business model to fund his life of RDF and personal knowledge management research.
Danny has a range of interests very similar to mine. (He even has some software that really wants to be SdiDesk ;-) And which was written long before I got started.)
At the same time, some of his intuitions are diametrically opposite to my own. I would never have written SdiDesk in Java, and I'm pretty sceptical about the Semantic Web as a whole.
Nevertheless, good luck to Danny on this. It's always inspiring to see people chasing their dreams, particularly of a life of independent software R&D. And I look forward to seeing what he comes up with.
