RDF.net Is Expiring · Jan­uary 6, 2006, to be pre­cise. Should I re­new it? Should I ex­tend the RDF.net chal­lenge? Might some­one of­fer me a prince­ly sum for it? [Now, re­al­ly. -Ed.] [It’s a joke, OK? -T]. Sugges­tion­s?
DC Intel · Most places in the world, when you talk about “Intel” you’re talk­ing about CPU chip­s. In Wash­ing­ton DC, that word is uni­ver­sal­ly an ab­bre­vi­a­tion for In­tel­li­gence, as in three-letter agen­cies, spook­s, and so on. A cou­ple of weeks ago I was in­vit­ed to an all-day meet­ing of the In­tel­li­gence Com­mu­ni­ty Me­ta­da­ta Work­ing Group (ICMWG) out in Vir­gini­a, one of my more in­ter­est­ing out­ings of 2003. Here­with some per­son­al notes on the no­tion of spy­ing and a look at what may be the world’s biggest and hard­est meta­da­ta prob­lem, with some re­marks on the ap­pli­ca­tion of RDF ...
Semantic Web: Gripes and A Way Forward · I got a re­al­ly ex­cel­lent let­ter from Mark But­ler of HP, pro­voked by my RDF.net Chal­lenge and the en­su­ing con­ver­sa­tion. A point­er to his thoughts and one sug­gest­ed way for­ward for the S.W ...
RDF Challenge - Entry #1 · From Dick McCul­lough, the first hat thrown in­to the RDF.net chal­lenge ring: MKE, the McCul­lough Knowl­edge Ex­plor­er. Sum­ma­ry: no, not even close ...
The RDF Conversation · The RDFnik com­mu­ni­ty is not that large, but it's dy­nam­ic. My RDF.net es­saylet from yes­ter­day pro­voked a re­al flur­ry of com­men­tary in oth­er blogs and of in­com­ing cor­re­spon­dence. Here­in I ad­dress a few of the correspondents' is­sues and go fair­ly deep on some thoughts pro­voked by Sjo­erd Viss­cher. (Warn­ing: this last bit will be of in­ter­est on­ly to the most de­ranged fringe of markup pedants.) ...
The RDF.net Challenge · I've owned the do­main name RDF.net for years, but nev­er done any­thing with it. This was kicked in­to the front of my con­scious­ness to­day by an en­ter­tain­ing bolt from the blue. Here­with some gen­er­al notes on RDF, its his­to­ry and prospect­s, and a Grand Chal­lenge to the RDF com­mu­ni­ty: I'll give RDF.net to who­ev­er builds the first ap­pli­ca­tion that de­serves it ...
