Leigh Dodds on SPARQL

Leigh Dodds has been quiet lately, and has finally come up for air with an impressive collection of SPARQL related work. He describes the work here. Nice job Leigh!

I’d like to pull out one quote from his xml.com article:

A key aspect of the Web 2.0 idea is the ability to extract and query information held across many different ad hoc, third party apps, services, or repositories. That ability to move in and among various data sources is key to the Web 2.0 idea of the mashup — take a little Google Maps, salt with some eBay, and sprinkle with a heaping hunk of Flickr, right?

SPARQL, which is both a query language and a data access protocol, has the ability to become a key component in Web 2.0 applications: as a standard backed by a flexible data model, it can provide a common query mechanism for all Web 2.0 applications.

I can’t help but wonder if SPARQL might not pick up traction in the space currently occupied by library-based standards like SRU.
