14. A World of Uses: Noncommercial Applications Based on RDF

Chapter 14. A World of Uses: Noncommercial Applications Based on RDF

My first introduction to RDF didn’t come about because I developed a sudden and overwhelming interest in the Semantic Web. My interest had more prosaic beginnings than that—through exposure to RDF/XML in Mozilla, an open source browser/application framework.

Then and now, RDF/XML formed the format for the table of contents (TOC)-based structures that formed favorites lists, the sidebar, and pretty much anything expressible in a table of contents infrastructure. One of the frustrating things about the effort, though, is that it seemed that the RDF/XML used by Mozilla kept changing. And it also seemed that I couldn’t get the knack of using it correctly. So, I decided the only thing to do was access the RDF specifications directly and learn about RDF and RDF/XML from the source. The rest, as they say, is history, culminating in my writing this book.
