Im not sure I want to design for design sakes. Just becuase one has schema tools does not mean one writes schemas, endlessly. Just becuase I have XML does not mean I write XML vocabulariesl; though occasionally I might when designing a UI or 3tier "control" library. We have a billion blog sites out there, and they have "follower" networks. These are working p2p trust networks, today. I want to see webid first use whats there (using semweb technologies to describe it). I want to see a description of my yorkporc2.blogspot.com follower network, noting who was authenticated (by what common level of assurance) to become a follower I dont really see semweb as "designing" anything. I see it as describing whats already there. I dont want to see ping back or trust networking done the "linked data" way. I want to see linked data describing what is done, and then offering a secure sparql protocol endpoint. I want to be able to place a sparql protocol URI in a cert, in the SAN, where the URI is a name for that particular "stored query" (or rather a name for the resultset). Since a pgp keyring is a little following network, is there any reason why some semweb vocab can not describing both a keyring's members and a blogspots follower network, and the certs I have in my various custom windows certs store (one or more .sst files, that are just collection of certs along with my metadata properties about them) that list the various collections I have for relying on certs?  > Date: Fri, 30 Dec 2011 13:16:02 +0100
