Hi Manu,

I'm sorry if I missed anything, I didn't follow [JSON] too closely, but has there been any discussion/writeup on use cases for RDF-in-JSON?

I'm tempted to argue that the format should be the simplest thing that could possibly work. Perhaps a list of objects, each with "s", "p", "o" keys, plus bits for node types, datatypes, language tags.

My impression is that some in the TF would strongly disagree with that, and have something completely different in mind, and I'd like to understand what they actually want to *do* with the format.

I think a wiki page that lists use cases would be terrific.
