Happy 7th Birthday Planet RDF

On 5th January 2004 we had the idea of making a planet aggregator for the Semantic Web RDF community and we (The Chaps) happened to have the source code pieces already around: Chumpologica by Matt, design by Phil, servers by Edd and glue code by Dave. More of a” stone soup” project now I come to think about it.

Not sure what the future is here. I feel like rewriting the entire code base from old school python, php + glue into something more modern like Node.js based although getting a decent rss tag soup parser might be tricky, maybe add archiving (but copyrights, hmm), better integrate with twitter and commenting (Disqus?).

But whatever the future, it will remain Triples All The Way Down.
