Adding to my earlier comment...

It is interesting that you have just done this, despite numerous
arguments about why/how it could not or should not be done. I was never
competent to evaluate those arguments from a programmer/ software
engineer's perspective, but I never bought them from a user perspective.

This raises some questions:
* how to you address those arguments? (from past forum entries)
* are there any tradeoffs from a user or developer's perspective? (which
in a sense patially validate those arguments)

FANTASTIC! Kudos to you for figuring out a way to do this.

Here's an idea: why not integrate the triples viewing capabilities of
Similes' Exhibit (http://simile.mit.edu/exhibit/) into the bottom of the
Semantic Media Wiki page as an alternative to the table of triples.
Possibly as a link to a separate window, or possibly embedded into the
wiki page itself (which may be much harder).

I've now created a test site for a semantic MediaWiki that lets you put
the triple (x,R,y) anywhere, not just on page x:


The code is available:


The syntax for a triple is "[[x::R::y]]" (or just "[[R::y]]" if you're
already on page x).

Broken things I'd like help with:

% When editing an existing page, all the semantic info vanishes.


The first page has semantic info, the second doesn't. My extension does
have a "in edit mode, don't display semantic data" comment + some
supporting code, but commenting out this code doesn't help.

% When editing a new page, semantic info is visible, but unformatted:


% If I try to protect against spammers by adding this to

$wgGroupPermissions['*']['edit'] = false;

the semantic info disappears when you're viewing new (non-existent)
pages. I've commented this setting out for now (so I can't give an
example page of where this happens), but I'd like to get this fixed.

% Minor: my code breaks the "nowiki" tag (so the main page says
"((x::R::y))" instead of "[[x::R::y]]" when giving an example)

% Minor: weird empty semantic triple at the bottom of some pages:


(am I doing the MySQL SELECT wrong?)

% These are the "big" errors. There are many smaller errors + lots of
features I want to add.

Any volunteers? No CVS or anything yet (the sf.net page is not
up-to-date), but please send suggestions/code improvements.

We're just a Bunch Of Regular Guys, a collective group that's trying to
understand and assimilate technology. We feel that resistance to new
ideas and technology is unwise and ultimately futile.
