Hi Thomas,

What you gain from RDF is a Language (system of signs, syntax, and 
semantics) for encoding and decoding of information, without any 
platform (operating system, application, data serialization format, 
actual content creation notation) lock-in..

RDF enables the construction of the digital equivalent of natural 
language sentences.

Hope this helps.
