This might be of interest to some folk here, so I'm pointing it out in case you haven't seen it. There's already a fair amount of prior art to consider in RDF stream processing, much of it coming from people on this list.

A new W3C Community Group formed last week: http://www.w3.org/community/rsp/.

From the web page:

> The mission of the RDF Stream Processing Community Group (RSP) is to define a common model for producing, transmitting and continuously querying RDF Streams. This includes extensions to both RDF and SPARQL for representing streaming data, as well as their semantics. Moreover this work envisions an ecosystem of streaming and static RDF data sources whose data can be combined through standard models, languages and protocols. Complementary to related work in the area of databases, this Community Group looks at the dynamic properties of graph-based data, i.e., graphs that are produced over time and which may change their shape and data over time.

I joined the group with a couple of things in mind: ensuring that the results work with JSON-LD (or are serialization-neutral), and that the resulting processing protocols can be used with sets of Open Annotations (e.g., walking a list/stream of annotations to build a TEI-GE document). I'm also interested in computational methods that move us away a bit from a strict von Neumann model towards a more distributed, functional programming way of working with information.
