Hi all,

The key to the Web's run-a-way success is its openness:

It is open to anyone (with a computer).
The underlying 'stuff' is open to anyone (with the right training)

RDF should continue this fine tradition.

RDF can be open by:
a) Hiding syntax completely from the casual user.
b) Making available the best ontologies free (beer//speech)

The key to the Web's run-a-way success is its scalabilty

Anyone can set up a portal (with a proper connection).
Anyone can link from their page to another.

RDF should continue this fine tradition.

RDF can be scalable by:
a) Implementing context mechanisms
b) Allowing proper tractability

Goodbye.
