Hi Charlie, all -

Great stuff!

Actually we have been looking into how to better align SIOC
(http://rdfs.org/sioc/spec) with Schema.org and we would like to produce a
draft review of terms from both sides to see if alignment is possible.

A little bit about SIOC as you may not be aware of it...

SIOC is a schema for describing social web content (posts, comments, forums,
blogs, etc.) - itıs been in development for nearly eight years and is
currently one of the formats used by Drupal 7 along and various other

I recently gave a talk about SIOC data (see slides at
http://www.slideshare.net/Cloud/20110426a-amsterdam-ifipsnsci from April)
and according to the recent CommonCrawl dataset, SIOC terms like
UserAccount, Comment and BlogPost are found in the top 20 most commonly-used
RDFa types.

We would be very interested in figuring out what we can do to accommodate
all proposals, even modifying SIOC terms where appropriate.

I will send some more details shortly.
