Looking forwards, looking back

2004: Retrospective "2004 is coming to an end, so I decided to jot down some of my more memorable moments, both good and bad...Served my first full year as CTO of webMethods...Thought a lot about the Semantic Web and Model Driven Design."

2005: Resolutions "I take New Year's resolutions pretty seriously, as it's depressing to make promises to yourself that you don't keep. That being said, here are some of my resolutions for 2005...Evangelize the Semantic Web."

Update: Also has Predications which include the Semantic Web overtaking Web Services in mindshare.

A couple of other 2005 predications:
* My predictions for IT in year 2005 "The Semantic Web will still be mostly at the same point it is now, at the end of 2005. That is, some nice ideas, including RDF and XML will stick around and find some uses, but OWL won’t take off."
* Yet Another 2005 Prediction List "XML Query, the Semantic Web, and WS-* will continue to hold promise. This is the polite way of saying that none of the above will have an explosive burst of adoption in 2005."
* Search 2005 "Metadata-enhanced search. Will be ad hoc and pragmatic, pulling useful bits from private sources and people following officious Semantic Web and lowercase semantic web practices."
