I too am looking to do something similar, so if there have been private  responses that you could share, that would be of interest to me as well  - though we are looking for something that is scalable, so performance  would matter.
  From an architectural standpoint, in the context of an integrated  system which incorporates social networking aspects as well as  collaborative workspaces, in addition to the questions posed by Aldo, I  would also like to get some guidance on the best approaches for its  semantic enablement - i.e. whether at this stage it should be  intrinsically semantic, or enabled via semantic layer.
  Thanks in advance for your thoughts.

hi all,

as a simple excercise i would like to build a simple contact
management app ( domain: generic business... contacts, accounts,
employees, relations, etc ) as follows.

*a central server with a triple store
** inference engine
** contexts / named graphs
*several user accounts
*a user interface that allows users to
** create / delete statements
*** contexts are used to keep track of provenance of statements
** sparql and simple browsing
*an ontology ( plus inference layer ) that allows me to, at least:
** use or define some common inverse functional properties ( ssn /
email / internal id / phone extension ) and perform smushing.
** define basic contact info plus some relationships ( hierarchy,
relation to an organization, etc. transitivity would be nice in
hierarchical relationships )

what storage / inference stack would you use?
any recommended ontologies?
design considerations / ideas?
dev workflow?

doesn't need to be performant at all. we're talking very small numbers here.

thx ;)
