There is also a tutorial style description of RDQL:

Subject: AMS meeting agenda: reading list, presentations

I updated the ftf page w.r.t. reading list and presentations
per our discussion last week:

  RDF Data Access Working Group Meeting, April 2004
  hosted near Amsterdam by @semantics
  DRAFT by Dan Connolly, chair 
  final version due Wed, 14 Apr
  $Revision: 1.25 $ of $Date: 2004/04/12 16:47:06 $ by $Author

The agenda is pretty packed. Considering the amount of
time and money people are investing in this meeting, I'd
like your support in running the meeting crisply. 9am start
means get booted up (coffee, network, etc.) _before_ 9am.
A 15 minute break means I'll start asking folks to sit
down after about 10 or 12 minutes so that the meeting actually
resumes 15 minutes after the start of the break. A speaker
with a 10 minute slot will do well to practice once or twice to
see that it fits into 8 or 9 minutes so that I won't have
to cut you off in mid-sentence to give the other
speakers their time.

Here's a text version of the 2nd day agenda and the reading
list, where most of the new material appears.

Reading List

   The following reading materials are recommended to you by fellow WG
   members (e.g. in the [20]10 Apr telcon) and by the chair for meeting
   preparation. They are reasonably short, and you will eventually need
   to know this material in order to participate effectively in this WG,
   but since they don't directly relate to decisions on the meeting
   agenda, none of them is required.
     * [21]Turtle - Terse RDF Triple Language

       That's a precise spec for turtle. For an informal introduction to
       this style of syntax, see...
