    I finally decided what I want to do with SPARQL.com (at least for now).

    I turned it into a discussion forum on the topics of SPARQL and RDF technologies.

    http://www.sparql.com/

    SPARQL is the newly adopted W3C specification (now a W3C recommendation) for the RDF Query language... basically, it allows applications to query RDF-enhanced websites as if they were databases.

    Really powerful stuff, people say SPARQL will be the new Web 3.0!

    This is the first forum for developers to discuss these new relatively specifications and find ways to proliferate the technology. I encourage anyone who's interested in SPARQL to register and help me seed the content!

    I am having a hard time understanding SPARQL. What makes this any different from Ruby on Rails, or Django other then being based on RDF?

    RoR and Django are web development frameworks.

    RDF is much more involved than that... it's a specification that augments websites with a computer-legible information interface, such that any computer system, application, etc, can now read the contents of a website without the need of an interpreter (spider).

    SPARQL is a query language for that RDF information. It allows you to query, join, aggregate, and display information from websites as if they were tables in a database and reuse that information elsewhere.

    Could you give us some example of some source code?

    Here's the SPARQL specification:

    SPARQL Query Language: http://www.w3.org/TR/rdf-sparql-query/
    SPARQL Protocol: http://www.w3.org/TR/rdf-sparql-protocol/
    SPARQL Results: http://www.w3.org/TR/rdf-sparql-XMLres/

    RDF (the "data"): http://www.w3.org/RDF/

    So I am guessing that this is going to be much more search engine optimized then anything else on the web.

    If you are purely doing websites, and have no intention to have desktop applications, what are the advantages to the developer, and the consumer?

    It's not just about search engine optimization - it's also about data that can be parsed and processed.

    Think about it this way.... RDF is like RSS for every type of information in existence. In that way, it allows your site to "feed" the world. And SPARQL allows other sites to filter your feeds, combine them with other filtered feeds, process the results (group them, do calculations, whatever), and present something to the end user.

    It's like an intelligent, all-encompassing RSS (sort of). I think you can imagine the possibilities
