Just to answer my own question...looking through
http://xmlns.com/foaf/0.1/ i found something
similar to what I had in mind: Property: foaf:topic_interest
http://xmlns.com/foaf/0.1/#term_topic_interest

So, if I understand it correctly, we could add an interest of
"accessibility" and then do a recursive search through FOAF
files (starting from a single person, spidering their contacts)
and look for those with such an interest specified in their
personal description...

Again...sorry...just thinking out loud.

Patrick
p.s.: is it my connection, or does http://xmlns.com/foaf/0.1/
just load and load without ever completing fully? Keeps
timing out on me...

I was thinking more along the lines of a generic enough attribute or element
that can be set in the FOAF itself, so that one could (theoretically)
automatically
filter for interest when exploring FOAF relationships (i.e. starting from
Jon, show
me all his contacts with an interest and/or expertise in accessibility)

Interests can be expressed in FOAF by pointing to a page about the topic. I
know
at least one person is looking at an ontology for resumés/CVs that would
include expertise statements.
