  21. 21. Introducing Triples Nodes & Links follows jonvoss SILibraries csnesbit• Quite simply: Subject, Predicate, Object• gives us the ability to describe entities in a way that is machine readable
  22. 22. Triples for machines• triples can be serialized in many different ways, including Resource Description Framework, RDF/XML, RDFa, N3, Turtle, etc, but they all describe things in the <subject><predicate><object> format.• of course, we need to be consistent and predictable for machines to understand us.

They say they are free, but have no freepapers, and assign as a reason for running away that they were required to fight. Ihave also on board two slaves taken from the Virginia shore by the lateCommander J. Ward; they say they belong to Mrs. Stewart, a widow, residing nearMathias Point. I respectfully request instructions in relation to all these people.” -Capt. S. C. Rowan, aboard the U.S.S. Pawnee, to Gideon Welles, Secretary of the Navy, July 23, 1861
