This paper describes TM/XML, an XML syntax for Topic Maps that is very close to the natural, or colloquial, XML representation of the information in the topic map. It can be used to process Topic Maps data with XML tools, and integrate non-Topic Maps systems with Topic Maps systems.
Further, TM-Views, a mechanism for describing what to include when extracting a fragment from a topic map, is described. TM-Views improves the usability of TM/XML in the described use cases, but can also be used independently of TM/XML.

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.
