  Hello All,

This is my first post to this group (please be gentle :-) ).

I am pleased to announce JSON Datasets[1] a way to extract RDF from any 
HTML document using JSON.

My motivation began a year or so back I noticed that the semantic web 
was becoming far to complex and obtrusive to be simple to use in HTML.
I have seen far too often authors use RDFa, Microdata and Microformats 
in a document that only describes their contact information, I can only 
describe it as a semantic overload.

So another way, an unobtrusive Semantic Web.
JSON Datasets uses a HTML Query Syntax which uses a few simple 
descriptive terms which are a little like CSS to describe the contents 
of a html document. JSON Datasets can also be linked to in the head of 
your document just like a css stylesheet. A html document is parsed 
along with a JSON Dataset, and the results are outputted as yummy RDF.

Please visit the link below to find out more, there are plenty of 
examples, a bookmarklet and a download of the whole project.
