Re: [DBpedia-discussion] Semantic Web Deployment


you were given feedback multiple times but have not taken it into account,
so your messages start bordering spam.

The problem might be not with your intentions, but with their presentation.
Two main issues, in my opinion:
1. stop inventing new terms. What is "consolidated metamodel", "composition
of related event flows" or "contextual sorting" etc. etc.? Nobody knows and
nobody cares.
When it comes to RDF, you have to use precise terms from specifications
such as
2. stop making people read pages of documents. Nobody has time for that,
and everybody will parse prose differently.
Give them something they can execute (open source program), or a W3C-style
specification (example:

If you can't code or can't write specs, well, you have to learn, before you
get somewhere more concrete than your current document.

This was not meant to be mean.
