Interesting. I like the comment in 'semantic challenges' about 'pesky booleans'. I wonder if there are any suggestions about how to deal with these from a design perspective. Design is usually (if not always) an iterative process, so it's understandable if you only, in practice, discover your assumptions after the first pass or so, but, it seems to me, that assuming something is a simple boolean, rather than investigating the requirements more closely during your initial requirements analysis, might be an important thing to be aware/beware of.

In their particular example, they have an entity 'a shop' and give it the property 'has quay'... but, 'has quay' is not a boolean property, there are qualifications about it (as the article says). It's a case, I think, for fuzzy logic - but how to recognise that in a semantic wiki? Could you have sub-relations to the 'has quay' relation that, collectively give a robust value of 1 if the shop is on the quay and the quay is huge and free for everybody or .1 if it is 500m from the quay and the quay itself is only usable in mid-summer on alternate Fridays?

What do you think?

Free, open-source extension to MediaWiki - lets you store & query data
Introduction

Semantic MediaWiki (SMW) is a free, open-source extension to MediaWiki – the wiki software that powers Wikipedia – that lets you store and query data within the wiki's pages.

Semantic MediaWiki is also a full-fledged framework, in conjunction with many spinoff extensions, that can turn a wiki into a powerful and flexible “collaborative database”. All data created within SMW can easily be published via the Semantic Web, allowing other systems to use this data seamlessly.
