Lessons Learned By An XML Hacker

I’m going to be speaking at XMLOpen in September, and I notice that my (late) abstract has now made it into the conference programme,
The talk is titled “Understanding RDF: Lessons Learned by an XML Hacker” and will be an attempt to synthesize the things I’ve learnt about RDF, the semantic web, etc over the last few years whilst contributing to the FOAF project.
For the seasoned RDF developer the talk is unlikely to offer many fresh insights, but if you’re still new to the technology, or are interested in wading in, then I hope there will be something there for you. I certainly don’t class myself as an expert, this is just a chance to share some of the lessons I’ve learnt.
