Great article.  Go Drupal & RDFa! :)

Though, right now in PHP lnad, I'm more excited about elgg [1].

I'll be working on improving the FOAF support (RDF/XML and RDFa), but also
FOAF+SSL, datawiki plugin (SPARQL Update), it has an inbuilt triple store
(which they independently desinged), ACLs and a ton of social networking
features.  GNU Social [2] have also shown an interest in joint work, with a
view to make a protocol for federation (I think the logical choice there is
RDF(a)) ... time will tell.

Being MySQL based means that it can use ARC2 SPARQL, which is possibly a
limitation for Drupal?
