Talk with Drummond

      2008/09/02

Talked with Drummond this morning at iiw2007 . Finally getting to know the problem space that he is tackling. I have always been very vague on what he talks on Subject-predicate etc. and graph model etc.

Identifier usually is a pointer to an object and nothing more, but what he is trying to do is to build the relationship expression into the identifier itself.

To illustrate it, he was using

* has
* has a
* is
* is a

relationship. The example that he was drawing on was something like this.

=drummond/$is/=drummond.reed
=drummond/$is$a/+person
=drummond/$has/+name+first/(someref)
=drummond/$has/+name+first//”Drummond
