The Resource Description Framework RDF allows you to describe web documents and resources from the real world—people, organisations, things—in a computer-processable way. Publishing such descriptions on the web creates the semantic web. URIs are very important as the link between RDF and the web. This article presents guidelines for their effective use.
The mission of this Working Group (WG) is to develop a process for encrypting/decrypting digital content (including XML documents and portions thereof) and an XML syntax used to represent the (1) encrypted content and (2) information that enables an intended recipient to decrypt it..
Barry Smith explains scientific ontologies in the sense that a scientific ontology always refers to something existing in reality. In the talk, ontologies will be treated on `word-level`, i.e. neither technology nor implementation are subject of the talk, but only what comes before that in ontological design.

This document defines an abstract syntax on which RDF is based, and which serves to link its concrete syntax to its formal semantics. This abstract syntax is quite distinct from XML's tree-based infoset [XML-INFOSET]. It also includes discussion of design goals, key concepts, datatyping, character normalization and handling of URI references.
This document defines an XML syntax for RDF called RDF/XML in terms of Namespaces in XML, the XML Information Set and XML Base. The formal grammar for the syntax is annotated with actions generating triples of the RDF graph as defined in RDF Concepts and Abstract Syntax.

It`s not a Web of computers, it`s a Web of People.... Sir Timothy Berners-Lee, the inventor of the Web, is talking about the history of the Web and on the subject of Web Science
Resource Description Framework (RDF) is a standard for describing resources on the web. This guide contains links to many RDF resources including examples, documents, software, tools and projects that use it.
