  22. 22. Zemanta's vision is to help you while you are creating content. Our front-end is wherever your existing workflow is. We are creating deep technology and hiding it behind a simple user experience. Andraz Tori People want more information in moment. Apture is about wrapping the web experience around you the user, rather than forcing the user to do work to find the content they're looking for. Tristan Harris Feedly makes news reading fun again. By employing deep semantic technology on the back end for clustering, linking and organizing we’re working to feedly deliver the world’s best news reading experience at the front end. Edwin Khodabakchian Glue leverages semantics to connect people around things and concepts they care about. In the future web, things and concepts will be primary and the pages will be secondary.

  26. 26. Our Suggestions for Success Put your idea in the 2x2. Be honest. Stay out of the deadzone no matter how cool Decide if you’re care about semantics or about user value. If it’s semantics – be a tool vendor. Don’t fund or spend money on semantic infrastructure beyond what’s necessary. The basic building blocks are available. Think hard about user experience. Make it amazing.
