rddl people. Re: RDDL (was RE: Negotiate Out TheNois
That I remember, but I wanted the answer not from you. Whatever. Unfortunately, your answer is just a part of possible answer. One can write APIs on top of APIs no matter how crazy are the APIs. What is the application that you gonna build with your API? What is the *task*? I understand that the question is hard. If you have no answer - just say : "I don't know. Just playing with APIs" and that would be a honest answer. As I said - I see nothing wrong with that. Some interesting things can pop up out of such activities. The only thing needed in this case would be saying loud: "RDDL is our student project, we're just playing with APIs". And please remove my name from the paper. I'm not playing with RDDL APIs, why should I be listed as a contributor? OK, I see. I ask too much. I want people to be honest with themselves. > For me, it's the best way I've found to document a vocabulary (to > humans) and point to resources for processing it (for both humans and > computers). is a game with words. To describe the clear task one should decompose 'processing' into something more particular. I feel like I'm talking to one of PHBs, who asks me : "well ... you - go write me some prorgam that would simplify my interaction with the computer!". The first thing I ( and you ) would ask him will be : 'what do you mean by "interaction"' ? What do you mean by "processing" ? Now you can start joking or playing that you don't understand what I'm talking about, like you did in the beginning of the thread. I think the number of 'RDDL supporters' is very small. I guess it should be easy to identify all of them and I think that being 'RDDL supporter' would not be a good thing for the reputation.
