The Wall Street Journal today had a front page article that should serve 
as a reminder as to why the ability to use TMQL to create virtual topic 
maps is so important.

The details were sketchy, as you would expect in any non-technical 
publication, but the gist of the article is about a team of geeks who 
created methodologies for easily searching across multiple data sources, 
allowing viewing within documents by classification (echoes of scope?), 
and the tracking of relationships by users. Sounds damned close to topic 
maps to me.

See, How Team of Geeks Cracked Spy Trade, Wall Street Journal, 4 
September 2009. I don't know if it is in free online version, I get the 
hard copy. ;-)

Hope everyone is looking forward to a great weekend!
