The visual scraper is actually a (patented) commercial product from the

The haystack team has done research on the topic of allowing people to
generate RDF from pages just by selecting parts of it. David was spent

I agree we need a way to make it easier for people to write and maintain

And I'm glad that other groups are creating RDF anyway :-)
