Now there is also the Eccenca foundation, the commercial platform where SMILA based products can be sold and bought. It is run by Brox and will be a one-stop “shopping mall” for both buyers and sellers of semantic services based on SMILA. Although not much is public, I know from presentations that they are on the topic – if you are interested, contact them.
Helge Brzoska posted a nice “thanks to Leo” mail on his eccenca blog, so I love to link to it. They also say a big thanks to Aduna, our excellent partners for Aperture:
Now that the license of Aperture is definitely not an issue any more, we can accelerate the IP process dramatically.
On behalf of the whole SMILA-Team and brox: Thanks also to the known folks at Aduna, the other major contributors of Aperture Project for teaming up in such a great manner and helping out with this major issue for SMILAs IP-Process.
Besides the obvious self-gratulation of this post, I hope it helps you, dear reader, to stay up to date about what happens in the topic of commercial semantic services.
