If they used RDF (forget about the RDF/XML notation) they would have a 
much better system. I would have a common username with multiple 
passwords, for instance. In addition, EC2 images would be really easy to 
understand rather that being a leap of fate that could burn a hole in

Amazon, Google, Facebook, LinkedIn etc.. are all struggling with:    (02)

1. coreference
2. privacy
3. data integration
4. silo-fication in an era of de-silo-fication.    (03)
