Semantics the Focus of New Release in MIKE2.0 Podcast Series
Method for an Integrated Knowledge Environment (MIKE2.0) is an open source framework for best practices and methods in enterprise information management. Structured Dynamics has been an active contributor to parts of MIKE2.0, particularly in semantic technologies.
MIKE2.0 has started a useful podcast series, hosted by Jim Harris of the OCDQ blog. The most recent release in that series deals with the open semantic enterprise, based on contributions from SD and my blog:

There is some good introductory material here, with the summaries toward the end of the 13-minute podcast nicely done. More detailed information on the open semantic enterprise is provided under MIKE2.0′s composite offering in this area.
Mixing Business and Pleasure
I never talk politics here, and rarely speak of sports or family or personal matters. But I’m making an exception today.
Since we lived in Montana a couple of decades back, skiing and the mountains have been a central theme in my family. Both of my kids learned to ski at Lost Trail before they even turned three. Today, both are impressive skiers. (I’m a different story, but that is immaterial. )
We have skied many places across the Western US, all enjoyable and all remarkable. But, our favorite amongst them has been Winter Park, CO (more specifically, Mary Jane — no Jane, no pain). We have been going there for nearly a decade. The slopes and the beauty are, of course, arguments in themselves. But also what makes Winter Park special is that it offers the best deal on earth for lift tickets (with an annual pass) and has a local clientele that is laid back and into substance and not flash.
As our kids have grown and taken on lives of their own, we have come to treasure those chances when all of us can be together. Sking — but summer activities, too — are great ways to make that happen.
So, it is with immeasurable pleasure that we closed the sale today on a new second home in Winter Park. It is absolutely perfect for all things outdoors. And, since we still have regular lives and work, we will be offering our new place for rental for those many weeks we can not enjoy it ourselves. If mountains and beauty and nature are in your calling, let us know. We have a fantastic place to rent to you in one of the most spectacular places on earth.
