Hi all!

I have previously submitted a use case for the issue of mapping a 
concept to something concrete, such as a person, and now I have written 
the code that does it. 

On http://my.opera.com/ I am now allowing people to map their tags to a 
rigid taxonomy, for the time being just Wordnet, but I can stuff 
anything in there, including for example URIs to foaf:Persons. 

I've blogged it at 
http://my.opera.com/semweb/blog/2007/03/08/marrying-folksonomies-and-taxonomies

My idea is to use SKOS for tags, but add a mapping to something else, 
like a foaf:Person. There are quite a few issues to be resolved, 
especially, I think that the user interface is too complex. But I hope 
the current system gives an idea of how I think this could be used, and 
please feel free to experiment with it. So, I hope this can be a use 
case for SKOS, I will definitely use SKOS there.

Cheers,

Kjetil
