Hi all, in response to Timothy's request I'll try to describe real world
problems / use cases I'm trying to solve: As the project I'd like to be
realized in this endeavor is a general purpose (knowledge enabled) database
back end with special features, use cases and problems may be the same of
the ones solved by traditional databases but with semantic back end and
special features provided benefits. So, it will not do much by itself but
to provide the means of higher application / presentation layers taking
advantage of such approaches.

As the document I'm posting is kind of illegible stuff, I believe sharing
its link for comments will be of great help for me when dumping my thoughts
on the keyboard given useful advice is provided for making things clearer.
Here is the Google Docs link (anyone can comment):


Please be patient. I have this bunch of ideas, all low level, protocol like
(nothing like an 'application'), for back end and infrastructure of
concrete semantic applications. Maybe not even a little part of all the
document is worth reading material or is not well written. What I'd like is
finally get to communicate my concepts to see if it is worth coding a
'proof of concept' of this 'semantic services database'. The reason I'm so
insistent in having this feedback and potential consumers before I do some
code is that I've made so many attempts before by myself and I didn't get
to nothing alone.

Best Regards,
