Hello RDF community,

I have read the article "Practical Knowledge Representation for the Web" (
http://www.cs.vu.nl/~frankh/postscript/IJCAI99-III.html#Calvanese:98AAAI ) and to my surprise, RDF
is depicted as an immature and disappointing language for representing semantics. This is in clear
contrast with the promise of RDF as the language to make the Semantic Web come true.
The authors could be biased as they come from the AI world, but nevertheless, their arguments seem
well founded to me.

Does anyone have comments on this article?
