cheap fads for geeks

| 1 Comment

As I was looking around online for real-world examples of how XML/RDF etc are useful things for my web development students to understand, I came across this excellent line from the description of FOAF: the 'friend of a friend' project:

Why is this interesting? Because it makes FOAF something more than a cheap fad for geeks. FOAF could be a basis for an extensible, standards-based platform for creating cheap fads for geeks. This is much more fun.

Too funny.

But it is a cool infrastructure. And it's the kind of thing that makes me wish Shelley Powers' new book on Practical RDF was already available...

Just now taking a break and looking around. The Thing will be online next week for review (she says with a tired, pained whimper).

Plenty to play with.
