graph farming is sweet
i finally got around to reading Graph Farming by Danny Ayers and it's very well done. i also scanned is slide deck on the topic but, as he points out, the slides are not too enlightening unless you have the whole thing in your head already. i like the notion that we should start thinking of "user-agents" in a new way. RDF can go quite a long way to creating a viable environment for autonomous messaging bots.
finally, all this looks quite similar to my exyus engine that i've been working on for the last several months. i, too, have been thinking of building a programming environment that makes HTTP-client and HTTP-server interactions 'easier.' and i think i'm close. and Danny's article given me some encouragement to continue to clean up and expand exyus.
