We don’t need no steenkin’ schemas

Bob DuCharme gets back to basics about RDF, and in doing so clearly hilights the value of partial understanding. Notice how the integration problem he undertakes scales linearly with the number of documents, rather than proportionally (O(N)) as it would if his code had to have full knowledge of all those schemas. By using RDF’s data model (note that each file uses a different serialization of the same basic RDF triples), this scaling problem is averted.
