Ruby Topic Maps (RTM) is a Topic Maps engine created in and for the Ruby programming language. Its focus is an intuitive and easy to use interface, or (as the creators of Ruby would express it): RTM aims to be the Topic Maps programmer’s best friend. The development of this library is a first step to enable Ruby programmers to work with the Topic Maps technology. The library is considered to be useful on its own but also as the basis for higher level tools, e.g. a Ruby on Rails plug-in with an interface like ActiveRecord’s.

I like the easy but powerful way of merging Topic Maps to extend and combine existing knowledge bases. Thus I see high potential in distributed environments where peer to peer solutions may open the gates to the real Web 3.0.
