ongoing · Semantic Web: Gripes and A Way Forward

ongoing · Semantic Web: Gripes and A Way Forward Check out the Mark Butler ppt (the "slide deck" link) -- an outstanding assessment of the RDF vision/reality.

My $.02: the people who created RDF were right to work toward a meta-metamodel that isn't constrained by document-centricity, but they should have spent more time exploring another general-purpose meta-metamodel, the relational model (as in Codd's definition, not any current implementation). There's a lot of unnecessary re-invention going on, as a result.
