Noone needs to read another thread to know graph models don't work. Information isn't constrained to binary relationships and your model is. You've essentially just created a big hypertext structure, and I'm not sure at all why you've got confused and are posting it on a database board.

The Semantic Web is doing this exact same thing but on an influential scale with RDF and associated processing languages, so why not help them out instead of flogging your own tiny efforts on an unapplicable newsgroup? Received on Sun Jul 30 2006 - 07:41:45 CDT
