   RE: [xml-dev] The perils of P18S (was Re: [xml-dev] Why RDF is hard )

Actually, what is measurable is manageable.  Whether what one chooses
to measure is important or not isn't the point;  measurement
is the vital act of science.  That isn't a bias.    The working
parts of complexity theory and adaptive systems can be summed
up as the emergence of means of measurement.

Interestingly the "anything expressible can be expressed" to some degree mirrors biases which have existed in the biological and other sciences for centuries - what is measurable can be measured and (implicitly) what is measurable is what is important.
