What I currently think with respect to RDF syntax is as follows:
We need a standard syntax to express RDF models: that
is the current one. It is not perfect (like everything),
but if I have a model in my mind, it can be expressed
in that syntax. Maybe there is a problem here: how is
that going to happen? By hand? Oh now! For anything of
practical size this is not fair to ask!
It should be written by computer programs. So we should
focus on that: lots of applications that produce RDF.
After all, writing a program to write in RDF syntax is
no rocket science. I will do it for our Euler proofs and
I guess it will be something like 20 lines of Java code.
Can anybody give the RDF syntax for
[[subject1 pred1 [subject2 pred2 object2]] pred3 object3]
Thank you.
