Hi Kingsley, SWEOlogists,

I agree with the sentiment that we don't want to devote a lot of
resources to setting up a portal, gathering the data is the priority.
However I believe a basic portal view is within easy reach.

Ok, on the one hand I'd very much like to see RDF data dumps made
available at the first possible opportunity, but for the Longwell view
mentioned earlier, I don't think that'll be necessary.

>From what I can gather, Virtuoso can provide Semantic Bank endpoints to
stores [1]. It also seems that Longwell can be run against a Semantic
Bank [2].

Kingsley, if you'd be willing to add that capability to the current
store, I can set up a temporary Longwell install so we can see what it
would look like. Should work, shouldn't it..?

Incidentally I do think there's enough tutorial etc. material out there
already for us not to need writing anything new. But what is needed is
some annotation of those resources to make them more easily accessible.
I'd suggest a quick & dirty vocab (align properly later) covering the
following aspects:

author, title, date: use DC?
level: one of beginnner, intermediate, advanced
topic(s): maybe just use tags in dc:subject, worry about SKOS later
length: not sure what you'd have here, but something simple like short,
medium, long
media: mime type

It'd only take an hour or two to set up a HTML form/bookmarklet to allow
reasonably quick filling in of these slots (probably easiest to have a
bit of javascript to construct RDF/XML client-side, like FOAF-a-matic
does), then POST the data into Virtuoso?
 
Cheers,
Danny.
