This sounds like a great system.

You might get a lot more data by giving your
users using an easy way to add more info.
Using the mKR language (see http://mkrmke.org)
the input would be

John Doe rel
    type = Person,
    know = [Bill Brown, Jill Higgins],
    make = The Story of My Life,
    space = Kansas City MO,
    time = February 2009;

If you want to distinguish,
you can use "has"  for attributes
and "rel" for links.
