An interesting discussion on the next improvements of the FOAF vocab going
on at foaf-dev

This post is a great example of how easy it will be to use foaf in html5 /
rdfa lite

A major appeal of these two is deployment simplicity in the newly
standardised RDFa Lite (which btw pre-declares the 'foaf:' prefix).

<div typeof="foaf:Person">
<a href="http://danbri.org/"
 property="foaf:homepage">I</a> attended
 <a href="http://learning.westergate.w-sussex.sch.uk/"
 property="foaf:schoolHomepage"
>Westergate</a> school,
 and work at <a href="http://www.vu.nl/"
 property="foaf:workplaceHomepage">VU Amsterdam</a>.
</div>

A major appeal of these two is deployment simplicity in the newly

<div typeof="foaf:Person">

 property="foaf:schoolHomepage">Westergate</a> school,

 property="foaf:workplaceHomepage">VU Amsterdam</a>.
</div>

Try pasting that into http://rdfa.info/play/ and you get

@prefix rdf: <http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#> .
@prefix foaf: <http://xmlns.com/foaf/0.1/> .

_:1
  rdf:type foaf:Person;
  foaf:homepage <http://danbri.org/>;
  foaf:schoolHomepage <http://learning.westergate.w-sussex.sch.uk/>;
  foaf:workplaceHomepage <http://www.vu.nl/> .

... since we care about linked data, more information about those
institutions ought to be available from their homepages; we don't need
to fully describe them each time.

How would this look if the orgs were described directly inline?
