Apple should embrace the Semantic Web?

I'm challenging Apple to embrace the Semantic Web by hiring me to replace Steve Jobs as CEO. I've laid out my argument and launched my campaign here.

Dear BigThink people,


I'm challenging Apple to embrace the Semantic Web by hiring me to replace Steve Jobs as CEO. I've laid out my argument and launched my campaign here:

I hope you find the ideas and the conversation compelling. I would love to discuss the merits with people in this community. My goal is to raise awareness of the Semantic Web and help Apple at the same time. I hope to be considered for the CEO job, but I don't expect it. I just think Apple should be a catalyst for the Semantic Web, and I'm using my candidacy to raise awareness of the issues. I am trying to point the way to the future for all businesses.

Thanks,

David Siegel
