From Dick McCullough, the first hat thrown into
the RDF.net challenge
ring: MKE, the McCullough Knowledge
Summary: no, not even close.
- Its advertised keywords are “knowledge representation
language, epistemology, artificial intelligence, relational database design,
I don't particularly want to do any of these things on a daily basis.
The only one I do at all is relational database design, and my main tool for
doing that is a whiteboard.
- It doesn't run on Mac.
- It's a client that I have to download.
- The pages that present MKE are ugly, with spelling errors and no
concessions to design or typography, featuring enigmatic riffs such as ASP
- I've never heard of this, it doesn't have any buzz.
Note: no single problem here is fatal, and hey, if a
dozen people pipe up and say “Hey Tim, you moron, MKE is great
stuff!” then I'll have to take a closer look.
But for the moment, nope.
