semantic clojure

aside from clojure in a nutshell, which is a great idea, i'd really love to
see a clojure for the semantic web book.

i think that the semantic web might just be clojure's sweet spot.

- it's a lisp, so we get all the benefits of symbolic processing,
there has been talk of building a prolog engine on top of it.
- it has seamless java interop, and almost all semweb tools are in java
- clojure's concept of taxonomic hierarchy as orthogonal to type should work very well
with rdf and owl's conception of class membership
- owl and rdf really call for a language which can deal flexibly and easily with
data structures, not hard coded objects.
