    Bob DuCharme - RDF: Store Metadata About Anything, Anywhere

    Resource Description Framework (RDF) is a W3C standard format for
    storing arbitrary data on the web and elsewhere. It's particularly
    good for storing metadata about files and other machine-accessible
    resources. You can store handfuls of RDF inside the resources they
    describe, outside of them, in relational databases, in XML, or any
    place you like, and then easily combine these handfuls into a
    database that you can use for queries, reports, and graphs.

    The ability to exchange and combine RDF from different places
    across the Web has made it a cornerstone of the W3C's "Semantic
    Web" plans, and it's already proving itself very helpful in
    accomplishing much more mundane tasks. Whether your data is
    structured or unstructured, typed or untyped, centralized or
    distributed, RDF just may make the job of storing and using
    that data easier.
