My name is George Anadiotis, and i am a writer, a planner and a doer. I am an Onalytica Top 100 Influencer in Big Data and Cloud, a Knowledge Graph expert, and a VentureBeat and ZDNet contributor, among other things.

Linked Data Orchestration is my brand. This podcast is where i share my work, as well as conversations with people who bring interesting news and views to the table.

Some might call this futurism; let's just say it's connecting the dots.

Coming from a technology background, i've had the chance to learn to play many instruments on the way to becoming a one man band and an orchestrator.

Before starting a career as an analyst and journalist, i served Fortune 500, startups and NGOs as a consultant, built and managed projects, products and teams of all sizes and shapes, and got involved in award-winning research. I still try to do that stuff as much as possible.
