vCard-in-RDF is also in this space.

There was to be a f2f meetup in Boston this week on that topic, as part 
of the W3C multi-group meeting.  I can't figure out from
exactly when it is, but my memory tells me they were talking about lunch 
  rather than evening meeting tommorrow. Sorry for the vagueness... 
maybe someone can chime in with details?

I've added semantic-web@w3.org to the CC list...

Could you give a progress report on neogeo? I'm sure there are many on 
semantic-web@w3.org who'd be interested to here.

BTW hope everyone saw 
...very useful survey of where we are to date (in RDFland at least).

There's a little network of namespaces here... each with overlapping 
scope: FOAF covers people and names but vCard does addressbook stuff 
better. It also does street addresses etc., but geo: and neogeo: do 
mappable, plottable, etc geography stuff better. There should be a 
combination of all three that describes people, organizations, groups 
and their associated locations at various levels of details.

Thanks for any thoughts,
