On Friday, February 11, a group of Semantic thought leaders from around the globe met with their host and colleague, Paul Miller, for the third installment of the Semantic Link, a monthly podcast covering the world of Semantic Technologies.
This month, we tackle the topic of “Marketing the Semantic Web”.
During the show, regulars Christine Connors, Eric Franzon, Ivan Herman, Eric Hoffer, Bernadette Hyland and Andraz Tori are joined by two special guests with some experience in both marketing and semantic technologies.
Krista Thomas was responsible for marketing at Thomson Reuters‘ semantic technology success story, Open Calais, and is now VP Marketing at Los Angeles startup Ad.ly.
