Neat - first time I've used OpenLink Data Explorer. :)

I found the "What" section most useful and the "When" and "SVG Graph"
sections neat. I think there is a great amount of untapped usefulness in
the "When" timeline view for news and comments.

The data was interesting to look at as well, it has a couple of things
about Digg that I didn't think of marking up - namely:

sioc:has_reply (for posts)
sioc:container_of (which could be reasoned given the rest of the
                   information on the page, but is good that it's marked
                   up - no need to make the reasoning agents guess.)
sioc_types:Comment (instead of sioc:Post - it's more accurate)
sioc:topic (is this directly related to sioc:Forum?)

Is this stuff extracted automatically, Kingsley? Is there a
Digg-specific data crawler? Curious as to how the crawler determines the
data as it's quite accurate.

Hopefully you won't have to update your omissions if Digg starts
publishing more SIOC RDFa :)

Is there some other vocabulary that you have seen apply to other sites
that you think Digg might also use?
