Publishing Requirements for Industry Standard Metadata: a packaging and metadata format, similar to NewsML, RSS, and XMLNews-Meta. Like RSS 1.0 and XMLNews-Meta (but not NewsML), PRISM is based on the World Wide Web Consortium's Resource Description Framework (RDF). PRISM is developed by an industry consortium of publishing software developers and publishers, including (among many others) Adobe, Quark, Conde Nast, and Time Inc. While the PRISM web site reports an interoperability demonstration at Seybold Boston in February 2000, no PRISM software is currently known to be available. See http://www.xmlnews.org/PRISM

Prism is a fictional planet created by Alan Dean Foster in which in addition to carbon based life forms, silicon based life forms also abound. There are a number of intelligent species on the planet, but the book which introduces the planet, Sentenced to Prism, only deals with one group, known as the Associative. The Associative contains a number of different specialized sub-types, much as a termite mound would.

A prism is a clay object with four, six or (occasionally) eight sides, each inscribed in one or more columns. Prisms usually contain one entire lexical or literary composition. Their use in the Old Babylonian school system is still somewhat unclear, but it is likely that they were written by school boys and dedicated to Nisaba, the goddess of writing. All lexical compilations end with a formulaic praise to Nisaba and some prisms (not those from Nippur) add a short inscription in which the text is dedicated to several deities, usually including Nisaba and her consort Haia.
