dajobe-lap: how do you politely answer this question?
dajobe-lap: I'd like to be able to use the CC schema at in non-RDF XML. This is because the schema should be useful to people who, right or wrong, aren't willing to pay the RDF tax. A lot of people will not use RDF at this point, and there's no technical reason why that should prevent them from using the CC schema.
DanC_jam: there is a technical reason: namespace mixing is solved for RDF, but not for XML. CC metadata is much more useful when it's mixed with other metadata, like title, author, etc.

DanCon: looking for good pgp howto stuff...
DanCon: odd; this howto sounds all paranoid, but then suggests checking the pgp source code with an md5 obtained from the same source as the code. what good is that?
DanCon: The GNU Privacy Handbook looks good
toward SVG business cards from foaf data
DanCon: 750 point bounty for an XSLT (or perl/python/whatever) doodad that takes my foaf file (with my name, title, employer's logo, my photo, my pgp fingerprint, phone number, and email address) and makes a nice business-card-sized SVG thingy
DanCon: extra 200 points if it takes an SVG template, and 3 example templates are supplied
DanCon: on the back I'd like to have the info itself, in N3, signed using cwm's crypto stuff
mdupont: Starting of a RDF RAD PHP install. Not working yet.
DanC: nice homepage layout/organization
DanC: hmm... connections to RSS and such? to RDF query WG-to-be?
DanC: connections to semwalker?
DanC: Epiphany does bookmarks with RSS and flat topics with dc:subject property, Nature uses RSS for kinds of bookmarks to their documents and Urchin for searching, Sony research project used RSS for image annotations etc. etc.
DanC: hmm... RSS as universal delta carrier?
danbri: ...and Mozilla uses RDF internally as its bookmarking representation, with a toHTML() mechanism for serializing it on disk.
danbri: The Mozilla RDF stuff is inadequately documented. Ryan Lee when at W3C did some work reverse-engineering their vocab, which is a dropped ball of mine now.
danbri: re Mozilla, the mozilla rdf pages have a bit more info. Also xulplanet doc is good.
