I wrote the following as a comment on Seth's latest post about RDF/XML syntax, but the blog engine asked me to add two unspecified numbers, and I had a great deal of difficulty doing that correctly. So instead, it will live here, and I'd love to learn answers to this question from Seth or anyone else who might have any answers. Quoting myself:
This is a completely serious question: Who are these people who are insisting on RDF/XML as the/a core of the semantic web? Where can I meet them? Or have I met them and not realized it? Or are they mostly straw-men, as part of me suspects?
Inquiring minds -- and SWEO members -- want to know.
