SIOC in its current form doesn't lend itself as the glue schema that I 
am proposing, but there are changes in the making because can really 
bring all of this together such that we are able to look at the info 
gathering data using the: People, Places, and Other Things approach.

Examples of other things would be:

Shared Bookmarks (like del.icio.us and integrated with del.icio.us via SKOS)
Blogs (Planet RDF for example)
Discussions (RDF Instance Data from comments associated with Blogs and 
Image Galleries (e.g. Flickr )
Feed Subscriptions (Blogrolls exposed properly)
Social Networks

I will add some links to the Wiki to show how this has been modeled 
using SIOC (including sample SPARQL queries etc.) and some suggested 
Schema Enhancements (SKOS, AtomOWL, Annotea Bookmarks, SIOC, and others 
have been integrated in this manner for a while; a point I tried to make 
at the very start of SWEO).

Uldis: Over to you re. SIOC's changes relating to the above :-)
