Excellent web architecure article

Benjamin Novack Carlyle wrote another winning article about his view of the web's future. As usual he's quite insightful and some of his thoughts are inspring. In his most recent article, The Architectural Spectrum, he makes the distinction between large architectures (the Web) and small architectures (ones specific to a piece of software or organization).

One major thought of note is that he sees RDF as being intentionally(?) relegated to the place of an RDBMS or SQL replacement technology. I certainly see his point, and think he may be right. However, I am enjoying the promises that RDFa makes for embedding RDF data directly into XHTML.

As always, we'll see what actually happens.

Bother... Sorry for the oversight Mr. Carlyle. You both have great ideas, and I'm afraid the "Benjamin" part is the one with which I'm most familiar. :)

My apologies, and thanks for the great article(s).
