Hello Jennifer, it's interesting project.

I'm not sure on your description of ontology at
http://trust.mindswap.org/trustOnt.shtml regarding 'Subject Specific
Rating'. Your example says:

 <trust:trust10 rdf:resource="#jenGolbeck">
  <rdfs:subject rdf:resource="http://trust.mindswap.org"/>
 </trust:trust10>

This cannot generate proper triple provided trust:trust10 is a property of
foaf:Person. Perhaps you want to write something like this (guess from your
previous paper):

  <Pesron rdf:nodeID="me">
   <trust:trust10>
    <trust:TrustsRegarding>
     <trust:trustsPerson rdf:resource="#jenGolbeck"/>
     <dc:subject rdf:resource="http://trust.mindswap.org"/>
    </trust:TrustsRegarding>
   </trust:trust10>
  </Pesron>

Unfortunately, your ontology defines the range of trust:trust10 as
foaf:Person, so the above is not possible. (and, maybe you want to use
dc:subject rather than rdfs:subject, the latter means the subject of an RDF
statement).

I think trust on a specific subject is much easier and appropriate to rate
than a simple trust on a person, and hope this section of your ontology
will be refined.

Gook luck on your project !

regards,
