Hi all

It seems that several of us are thinking along similar lines. I've just 
written http://danbri.org/words/2008/02/08/270 after a chat with Rich 
Kilmer last week, while Paul Stadig recently wrote
http://paul.stadig.name/2007/11/07/the-state-of-rdf-support-in-ruby-2007-conclusion/


It is time to pull together the scattered aspects of RDF in Ruby, and 
make something that a bit more integrated. I don't have time to code it 
myself but I'll be running round trying to persuade others to do so :)

Who here has time to collaborate on the creation of a unified, robust 
and modular RDF toolkit that could serve as a foundation for other more 
specialist toolkits, as well as for user-facing applications that need a 
simple way to parse and navigate RDF/XML?


As a reminder if you want to get others on this list,

	If you’re interested in collaborating on Ruby tools for RDF,
	please join the public-rdf-ruby@w3.org mailing list at W3C. Just
	send a note to public-rdf-ruby-request@w3.org with a subject
	line of “subscribe”.

There are archives at 
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-rdf-ruby/ (I can get the 
homepage of the archives updated if we want to point at more recent work).

cheers,

Dan

ps. for a wiki, we could surely use http://esw.w3.org/topic/ unless 
there is one in the ruby world that everyone uses
