Great point!


What is "Faceted Browsing" ?

What are the distinguishing characteristics (features, properties, 
attributes) of a Class of Thing referred to literally as a "Faceted 
Browser" ?

If we cannot build a useful discussion thread based on this, what are we 
saying to both ourselves and the rest of the world re., the usefulness 
of the following:

[1] RDF Language

[2] Linked Open Data constructed using RDF Language.

It's the year 2015, we can (and MUST) do better.

Let's get some responses going, in the form of attributes and associated 
comments describing said attributes literally, at the very least.
