    JenaBeans enable manipulation of the Semantic Web's structured data representation via the JVM, and it's development approach. Taylor did a great job of systems engineering, and then systems development to produce the JenaBean distro. His presentation conveyed the major issues involving his work. And, so this is the tool that we all can employ via compiler, to expand the functional limits of the WWW, as we move away from the clumsy world of the document, and on into the knowledge centric world involving a Web of Data.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
