Abdabi is a service discovery system for Web services and other service offerings. It has an RDF-based web of information, containing data on various companies and their service offerings, at its core. Anyone may submit additional information to this web. The issues of spam and potentially wrong or misleading information are adddressed by a web of trust. Everyone is free to operate an Abdabi server; the system does not have a central server. When the data in a server's local database cannot answer a user's query, the server querys other servers for additional information (queries from other servers must be answered using only information in the local database). Each server may have its own rules for evaluating recommendations and the web of trust.
