almost comically biassed diatribe against RDF and OWL and XML and

free to adopt the operational strategy which suits them best.  From  
what I know of VivoMind, their core business does not appear to be  
closely related to the goals of the SWeb. However, other small (and  
some large) companies appear to disagree with him about RDF . As one  
example, take a look at MindCite.    (02)

I point this out not in a spirit of criticism but only to provide some  
reassurance to those who might find SW technology of interest.  As on  
a number of other topics, John's views are both idiosyncratic and very  
starkly stated, admitting of very little discussion or debate. I am  
not particularly fond of OWL myself, but to attribute all uses of it  
to pointy-haired bosses who have drunk the kool-aid is misleading, and  
indeed something of an insult to a large number of very smart people  
of my acquaintance.    (03)
