Rhizome Wiki

Rhizome is a Wiki-like content management and delivery system that exposes the entire site including content, structure, and metadata as editable RDF. This means that instead of creating a site with URLs that correspond to a page of HTML, you can create URLs that represent just about anything. It was designed to enable non-technical users to create these representations in an easy, ad-hoc manner. For developers, this allows both content and structure to be easily repurposed and complex Web applications to be rapidly developed.
