Practical RDF

Shelley’s Practical RDF book weblog has the first chapter of her prequel to “Making Pigs Fly in a Nutshell” up for technical review. I doubt I’ll find any nits to pick, but I’ll be reading along anyway, since she’s already saying just the sort of things I want to hear:

It is only fair to give you a warning ahead of time that I am a prosaic and practical person. When faced with a new technology, rather than ooh and ahh and think to myself, “New toy!” my first response tends to be, “Well, that’s great. But, what can I do with it?” I am by nature, the ultimate engineer, and this book reflects this bias. Rather than get heavily into the more theoretical aspects of RDF in the book, I tend to focus on the practical aspects of the specifications and associated technologies.

As a confirmed “new toy!” person, it should be just what I need.
