A relationship and a relation are different things. Relation means
more or less "table". There are no tables in neo4j, only anonymous
nodes, properties of those nodes, and named connections
("relationships") between nodes.

Neo4j is basically a really old design refreshed. The advantages are
that it's fast, dynamic, and schema-free, and fairly lispy in its
inherently recursive structure. The disadvantages are that it's messy,
can't be "joined" but only traversed (this is bad especially for data
mining and reporting), is hard to data dump, and at the moment neo4j
runs in-process with no multi-user access.

Julian, I disagree with you on that point, but finding the papers may be a little difficult. We (Stockholm University) funded a lot of the neo4j project for using it as a node in our OpenMetadir (http://www.openmetadir.org/) implementation. There are some documents there but however I really recommend reading up on RDF (http://www.w3.org/RDF/ ) which is what the tripple-store is using.
If you have any more questions I'd love to help out.
