Published on

the first deck in the Cloud series for a meeting called Cloud1. This presentation lays down the principles for the open source Cloud of Knowing project. Chris Arning presented a deck about the semantic web. There were 4 of us who went! It was an inauspicious start for a group which drew in some seriously bright people and got asked some fundamental questions. There was no budget, no confidentiality clause. Any presentation made was put on a webjam so anyone could see it. That's how the project began.
