Experiencing the Power of Virtuoso in 5 Steps
Situation Analysis Computing for individuals and organization alike remain challenged the pervasiveness of data silos, something I've written about in various posts, over the years. Common to those posts is my use of Virtuoso (our product) to demonstrate how the otherwise insurmountable become surmountable.

Read the complete post. This is a multi-part series due the many ways in which Virtuoso trivializes Linked Data view creation against existing document types and data access protocols.

A lot of cool links :) 
The tale of two links

Projected (aka Gartner pulling numbers out of thin air) and actual.

Android: 539M vs 1059M. Off by about a factor of 2.
iOS: 189M vs 192M. Right on target.
Windows: 216M vs 35M. Off by about a factor of 6.
RIMM / BB: 123M vs 6M. Off by about a factor of 20.

So one out of four, aka broken clock is right twice a day.

I stumbled upon this nice and warm story about How the Grinch Stole Writing 

It's cute. This Grinch gives helpful advice : )

The story starts like this:

Every Writer in Wordville liked stories a lot.

But the Grinch who lived North of Wordville did not!

The Grinch hated writing—the whole creative way.

and continues here:

Enjoy :)
