Stephane, 

 

I am the IPTC representative for the Press Association and an active member of the working group that developed rNews. I can promise there is a lot going on with rNews as they work towards a 1.0 release due to be voted on at the next IPTC meeting in October.

 

Bernard, 

 

The guys behind rNews are very good about answering questions of when and what. I suggest posting your question on the rnews forum, http://dev.iptc.org/Forum-1

 

Best,

Hello Stéphane

Any idea when rNews will be available as an RDFS or OWL vocabulary?

 

No idea. I do not represent rNews in any way, but it seems there has been lots of activity around rNews, so I would hope it's coming sooner rather than later.

 

Steph.

 

	So far we have at least an URI for it http://dev.iptc.org/rnewsowl but no description :)

	Hi Jarred,

	 

	It seems to me that your work is similar or at least related to rNews [1]. I'm curious to know if you're looked at rNews when building the News Ontology. Do they complement each other, or are we re-inventing the wheel?

	 

	Steph.

	Hello all,

	 

	The Press Association has just published our first draft of a 'news' ontology (http://data.press.net/ontology). For each of the ontologies documented, we've included the motivation for the ontologies as well as some of the design decisions behind it. Also, you can get the rdf or ttl by adding the extension. For example, http://data.press.net/ontology/asset.rdf <http://data.press.net/ontology/asset.rdf>  gives you the ontology described at http://data.press.net/ontology/asset/ ..

	 

	Have a look at the ontology and tell us what you think. We think it is pretty good but feel free to point out our mistakes. We will fix it. Ask why we did it one way and not another. We will give you an answer.

	 

	Paul Wilton of Ontoba has been working with us at the PA and has spelled out a lot of the guiding principles of this work at http://www.ontoba.com/blog.

	 

	The reasons behind this work were talked about at SemTech 2011 San Fransisco: http://semtech2011.semanticweb.com/sessionPop.cfm?confid=62&proposalid=4134

	 

	Looking forward to hearing from you,
