Questioning RDF  —  I've been a long time skeptic when it comes to RDF and the Semantic Web.  Every once in a while I wonder if perhaps what I have a problem with is the W3C's vision of the Semantic Web as opposed to RDF itself.  However in previous attempts to explore RDF I've been surprised …

Sunday afternoon blather  —  Catching up in the aggregator, I noticed Scoble's post I'm taking the weekend off, check out Memeorandum.  Memeorandum is an aggregator/concentrator that's pretty cool - it has a machine learning algorithm to discover new feeds, and it favours longer posts.

Restraint Of Trade  —  I don't think any long time readers will need to think hard to figure out where I stand on the subject of port blocking as I've been rather transparent on that front almost from the start of my blog posting.  —  That said I also view my user agreement with Skype …
