Quads

Quads is a language designed to be easily read and written by both humans and automated agents. It is an an extension of N-Triples. This means that every well formed N-Triple is also a well formed Quad. Quads extends N-triples by adding the optional attributes: context, and the dialogue performatives: ". ? !". Names are allowed in the place of uriref; and they may be prefixed with namespaces. Compound names are supported.

newIt is interesting to note that the W3C eventually defined a QUADS grammar … see “RDF 1.1 N-Quads” which became a full recommendation as of three days from now, two years ago smug.

They call the  fourth element added to the triple, “graph” … but it is the same thing as i call “context”.

I woud say that a room becomes a Quads "context".

Seth says
Quads was designed to be RDF done folksonomy style.

Seth says
err ... and yes ... Quads is kind of Cyenglish updated ... alias Semenglish

Seth says
it didnt get much traction at the W3C ... oh well ... me thinks that eventually they might come around ... but i dont have the time to hang out there and wait for it to happen ... thing about context is that traditional logic cannot deal with it ... with traditional logic a thing is either true or false ... no context involved ... sound familure ?

Seth says
In the old cybermind, the menton was the only "context" structure. On today's web we can give a context a uri.

Mark de LA says
Is N-Triples similar to N-Tuples ? why not just remove the N and call them triples ?

Seth says

I think your on to something here :) Any identifier, and i don?t care how global it is in scope, gets its meaning from the context of it?s use. That?s why the triple was a bad choice for the Semantic Web. You will get better results by including a context identifier with the assertion. Check out my suggestion for Quads.

Seth says
Wow! Named contexes on the Semantic Web ... it's not like we didn't propose that 8 years ago  ... but i totally like it ... in fact i did, go look see me like it under the abstract :)

Okay. So now you can use the quad editor over in group 94 to see the actual quads we have … and see if we did them rightly … or more likely, document where and how I screwed the semantic pooch. ?
