FYI: to avoid cross posting but keep everyone interested in the loop

BTW, I would prefer to keep vocabularies related discussions on
public-vocabs list, which does NOT serve exclusively discussions about

"Groups who maintain Web Schemas are welcome to use this forum as a
feedback channel, in additional to whatever independent mechanisms they
also offer.
In particular, the Schema.org initiative has adopted this group as its
primary public feedback forum. Others are invited to do likewise."

We experiment with small #IndieWeb / #PersonalCloud project, where we
aim at making it easy to generate, publish and aggregate Linked Data
Resources. In many ways very similar to what dir.w3.org does.

Portable Linked Profiles: https://github.com/hackers4peace/plp-docs

Currently we get close to the point where someone can simply generate a
personal profile and use it to create listing in various organizations.
First early adopter: http://directory.open-steps.org/

Currently we use schema:Person and few other vocabularies whenever we
see need for it (eg. cco:). Most likely we will need a way for each
person to have possibility of creating different customized profiles to
list them in different networks. It would allow using description
specific to context where the profile appears. Also allowing to include
different subsets of schema:affiliation --> schema:Organization similar
with subsets of relevant interests, skills etc.

Does anyone have an example of using multiple Profiles for single Person?

To clarify requirements further using myself as example:

1. I use wwelves.org as my identity and personal cloud provider
2. I want to create coder profile
 a) host it on wwelves.org as canonical version of my coder profile
 b) syndicate it with http://codefor.de
 c) syndicate it with https://mozillians.org
 d) syndicate it with http://labs.ouishare.net
 e) syndicate it with any number of other hubs / directories
3. I want to create circus artist profile
 a) host it on wwelves.org as canonical version of my circus profile
 b) syndicate it with http://thewjf.com
 c) syndicate it with http://dreamtimecircus.org
 d) syndicate it with any number of other hubs /directories
4. Both of those profiles need to clearly state that they describe same
person https://wwelves.org/perpetual-tripper
5. We can NOT use them interchangeably or do NOT want to automatically
merge data from such different profiles. I guess owl:sameAs will not fit

I can recall Amy mentioning to me that BBC uses named graphs to address
somehow similar requirements. Also Sandro discussed something relevant
on WebID mailing list

Thanks for pointers and suggestions!
