danbri: Of intrinsic interest, but also re compare/contrast DC and FOAF process (and lack thereof in latter case).
 
Previous actions
danbri: danbri update FOAF spec to add a main section on naming, to provide a unified treatment of first/last/given/family addressing Misha's concern re first/last

libby: ACTION danbri: invite Peter St Andre to a future IRC FOAF meeting.
libby: ACTION danbri propose to the list "that it should be a goal to ultimately get the FOAF spec in a shape (whatever shape that is) such that IETF, Dublin Core and W3C Working Groups are comfortable citing it when they need to draw upon core concepts like Person, homepage, mbox, mbox_sha1sum etc."
danbri: action danbri: get his FOAF talks from FOAFCamp and Galway online (and do the workshop report!)
 
FOAF meeting agenda item 2 (F) Web site update
DanC: including jim's concerns

DanC: and other bits and bobs, such as annospam2spamlist.xsl and uri2mid

danbri_dna: Probably code-rotted, and the sample files are offline (sorry). But should show a basic approach.
danbri_dna: Uses Squish notation for RDF queries (an RDQL precursor), but should map very directly into RDQL, if you want to do this in Jena.
danbri_dna: Of course you'll need some other source of annotations. My idea was to populate the database with a generic RDF crawler that traverses rdfs:seeAlso links, and to encourage people to use the Annotea vocab in RDF files they publish elsewhere in the Web.
danbri_dna: Another day, another half-finished project. DontWorryBeCrappy?
 
danbri_dna: The print version might be more convenient to read.
danbri_dna: " I’m three photographs from Frank Sinatra because I’m photographed with Bill Clinton who’s been photographed with one of the Kennedys who’s been photographed with Frank Sinatra. That’s a silly application, but it really shows the power of the reuse of information."
