RDF catchup with GRDDL

2005-04-05 10:47

RDF catchup of things while I was on vacation in Lebanon.

  • MT-Redland - a Movable Type ObjectDriver (storage backend) using Redland and Mysql by Greg Williams. (More MT-Redland)
  • RDF Data Access Use Cases and Requirements, W3C Working Draft 25 March 2005 edited by Kendall Grant Clark.
  • A bit of fanboying from Bill :)

    Dave Beckett's Redland is really impressive; the amount of work that has gone into it is incredible.

    ... Dave Beckett knows RDF as well as anyone, if he supports contexts in redland there's a good reason for it. I think the W3C will adopt a position on them in time based on implementor feedback. I honestly don't know how the data model would cope with the fourth element; maybe there would be no impact.

  • Chris Schmidt made some more Redland Python tools to generate FOAF project web pages from RDF sources.

  • Sparqling Days hosted by @semantics in Italy next week finally went public and I'm attending, yay!

Finally I made an implementation of GRDDL (Gleaning Resource Descriptions from Dialects of Languages) inside Raptor the day before I left on vacation with no time to announce it, so I announced it properly using the raptor parsing demo. Sadly Evolution broke the demo links so instead see demo 1 and demo 2.
