that sounds great Terry.

Dan Connolly has been working on a new version of the vocabulary,
currently located here:


but he was thinking of replacing the old one[1] with that.
Having looked at it this week I think that the new one is much better
and should be the one to use. There was some discussion about whether
this is the right thing to do[2] which will affect the namespace used,
but I would definitely go with Dan's new one (which uses OWL and RDFS).

Dan, did you reach any conclusions about moving the new vocab to the
old namespace?

I'll have to have a think about that one. One thing that springs to mind
is Jim Ley/Leigh Dodds' work on foafnaut extensions for events[3]. I'm
sure there are other tools out there.
