thanks very much Alan for your answer.
I'm quite bad creating ontologies but I think it doesn't exists what I need
and my ignorance tell me it could be helpful to set out a simple owl
describing the event concept and its context:
Where, when, tematics, description, prices, images, videos, geolocalization.

I will develope that simple eventology for my needs trying to link with
already created resources properly (geonames, dbpedia and last.fm at the
moment).
I'm thinking in sharing information using RDFa, I will public in the list as
soon as it could be displayed (at least a pair of months).

thanks again folks :)
