Bob DuCharme - RDF: Store Metadata About Anything, Anywhere

Resource Description Framework (RDF) is a W3C standard format for
storing arbitrary data on the web and elsewhere. It's particularly
good for storing metadata about files and other machine-accessible
resources. You can store handfuls of RDF inside the resources they
describe, outside of them, in relational databases, in XML, or any
place you like, and then easily combine these handfuls into a
database that you can use for queries, reports, and graphs.
The ability to exchange and combine RDF from different places
across the Web has made it a cornerstone of the W3C's "Semantic
Web" plans, and it's already proving itself very helpful in
accomplishing much more mundane tasks. Whether your data is
structured or unstructured, typed or untyped, centralized or
distributed, RDF just may make the job of storing and using
that data easier.
