I found your information on AtlasSphere (unfortunately their email forwarder is broken) and thought, given your intellectual activism and your interest in Objectivism, you might find my current project compelling.

I have designed a profit-generating business model for capturing semantic information with significant improvements in acquisition speed and accuracy over other solutions, including Freebase and OWL. While there are several interesting applications for a semantic dictionary, one of our goals is to integrate it with a knowledge representation and curation platform.

Is there a convenient time for a brief conversation? I'd like to learn more about your background and interest in Objectivism and provide additional information. At the very least, perhaps you can point me to others who might be interested.

By way of introduction, I am a serial small-business entrepreneur. My projects have included a pre-internet scholarship search database and a pre-broadband telephony service. I have an MBA in Finance and have vetted investments in the context of a Private Equity group within a top-ten US bank.

Obviously, there can be an intellectual activism component to this project. In my estimation, one of the main reasons there are so few self-identifying Objectivists (probably less than thirty thousand), despite the over 10 million who have bought Ayn Rand’s books, is the lack of thinking skills available to most people in the context of philosophy. This platform, by providing the right incentives and tools, can teach a proper epistemology to change the culture over time.

In this configuration, our platform would allow individuals to learn proper conceptualization and reasoning skills in the context of their subjects of interest. Once they understand the epistemological methodologies that validate their mastery in particular areas of interest, they can then more easily, and with proper incentives, apply it to areas where they lack expertise, including philosophy.

In any case, the platform is an engine for knowledge curation in which all knowledge can be represented hierarchically with semantic connections.

Recent valuations for knowledge curation projects have been quite high, with Google’s undisclosed payment for Freebase evincing a strategic interest in the space. Other representative transactions include:

• Quora $1B at 2012
• StumbleUpon $29MM at 2009
• $25MM Series A at 2011
• Pearl Trees $11.6MM at 2011
• ReframeIt $3MM at 2011

As you can already tell this is a complex project with many features requiring several stages of development. While we have designed revenue models for each stage of development, at this point, my technical cofounder and I are looking for additional investment and another technical cofounder.

I look forward to speaking with you.
