Triple Space Computing is a very simple and powerful paradigm that inherits the communication model from Tuple Space Computing model and projects it in the context of the Semantic Web. Instead of sending messages forward and backward among participants, like most of today's web applications do, future triple-based applications will just use a simple communication based on writing and reading RDF triples in a shared space. Clever middleware is required to provide a virtual Global Semantic Space without requiring each application either to download or to search through the entire Semantic Web. Triple Space Computing as a new paradigm for coordination and communication compliant with the design principles of the Web, thus provides a major building block for the Semantic Web and for interoperation of Semantic Web services.
