This is the companion web site to my book, Pull, about the semantic web and pulling information. In 1999, I wrote a book called Futurize Your Enterprise, in which I predicted that 2010 is the year the semantic web will start to pick up momentum. I believe I was lucky enough to have the timing right. That’s why I’ve spent the last two years writing this book and preparing this site. I believe we’ll look back on 2010 as the birthyear of the true semantic web. It’s an idea whose time has come.
