Danny, Seth, sw@w3:
   I've thrown together an early draft of a tag ontology. There's 
nothing synset-ey in there yet (other than using SKOS ConceptSchemes), 
but it all ties gently in with the SKOS vocab. I'd be looking to extend 
this integration if possible.

   Danny, your email re the WordPress plugin was very interesting; I 
think it follows through with this, in that you could do the following:

<item rdf:about=" ... ">
   <dc:subject>Programming</dc:subject>
   <tags:taggedWithTag rdf:resource=" 
...my/personal/url/or/delicious/... /tag/programming" />
   <!-- or even mangle it a bit by still using dc:subject! -->
</item>

and in the tags RDF...

<Tag rdf:about="#programming">
   <tagName>Programming</tagName>
   <!-- whatever SKOS properties you'd like to use; it's a subclass of 
Concept.
        I'd like a better way of doing names; SKOS doesn't quite work, 
as prefLabel and
        altLabel don't capture the intended semantics. -->
</Tag>

   I'd love some (preferably constructive, but any kind will do!) 
feedback from interested parties; blog it, mail me, or mail to the 
list. Everything's on the Web:

RDF/XML: <http://www.holygoat.co.uk/owl/redwood/0.1/tags/>
"hidden" N3 version: 
<http://www.holygoat.co.uk/owl/redwood/0.1/tags/tags.n3>

   The first URL should be persistent (though the ontology contents are 
in flux, of course); the second one should stick around too.

   Cheers,
-R
