Hi all,

We've just released several vocabularies we've been working on for the
last year or two. These vocabularies are useful to anybody that would
like to mark up audio, video or prices. They are meant to be used by the
hundreds of audio/video publishing websites and blogs on the web as well
as the online web stores for audio/video.

The vocabularies are very minimal and re-use a great deal of what's out
there already. They are the reflection of work done in a variety of
communities across the web (W3C, RDFa TF, Microformats community,
Firefox, Songbird, Miro, etc.). They should be viewed as a starting
point, not a final vocabulary. Two years of research (and thorough
analysis of over 200 large media sites) went into each vocabulary. Here
are the vocabulary PURLs:

http://purl.org/media/
http://purl.org/media/audio
http://purl.org/media/video
http://purl.org/commerce/

and the current hosted locations for each PURL:

http://digitalbazaar.com/media
http://digitalbazaar.com/media/audio
http://digitalbazaar.com/media/video
http://digitalbazaar.com/commerce

All vocabularies have been placed into the public domain in order to
remove any hesitance to use or extend them. If those that are interested
could look at them and start criticizing design issues, that would be
superb. Vocabulary discussion should probably happen on the following
mailing list:

public-rdfa@w3.org
