ianalchemy: A discussion of RDF in the context of Wittgenstein's works on meaning and language
danbri: A little too "them and us" for my tastes. Plenty of semwebbers share those concerns; concerns which apply to many information-sharing activities. Logic, for all its limitations, can often help untangle confusions that arise when sharing information.
jhendler: Sorry, this one almost makes Shirky's first argument seem less dumb -- the notion that an artificial symbol system on the Web somehow violates the principles of human thought ala Wittgenstein is too ridiculous
jhendler: when will these guys understand that we're not trying to make great statements about knowledge in the universe but get some technology to support machine communication and the like
jhendler: ahh well, at least he knows enough not to call logic "Syllogism"
jhendler: (in my AI talk I summed up Shirkey's argument as: Syllogistic reasoning doesn't work; We should not use things that don't work; Therefore we should not use syllogistic reasoning.
jhendler: couldn't resist)
