[summary: new reviewing site for the Semantic Web, available now at

Hi all,

I'm pleased to announce the "launch" of revyu.com [1] - a reviewing and
rating site for the Semantic Web. The model should be familiar to those
who have written Amazon reviews or sites such as epinions, except that
revyu.com can be used to review anything at all.

The site mints URIs for reviewed items, with reviews and ratings then
made available in RDF/XML, either through a browser or via the SPARQL
endpoint [3]. Reviews and ratings are described using the recently
updated Review vocabulary by Danny Ayers [4], reviewers are described in
FOAF, and tags assigned to reviewed things are described using Richard
Newman's Tag ontology [5]. Content negotiation and the HTTP 303 redirect
technique are used, and the whole thing is built on RAP, from FU Berlin
[6]. Thanks to all those people.

If you visit the site you'll notice the nice, repetitive "alpha"
disclaimer across the top. The site is undergoing heavy development, so
please bear that in mind, but do log in and create some reviews. I'd be
delighted to hear any feedback/comments/feature requests. I'd also be
pleased to hear from anyone interested in integrating revyu.com data
into other sites. Also, if anyone is interested in reading (slightly)
more background, there is a very short paper at [6] from this years
ISWC2006 poster track.
